Close reading allows students to really dive deeper into the books they read! Even in kindergarten and first grade, students can develop key vocabulary and comprehension skills through read alouds and close reads. I have created several close reading lesson plans to help you get a better understanding for close reading and to give you some vocabulary and comprehension ideas for the following stories:
*Franklin's New Friend by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark
*My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza
*Sneaky Sheep by Chris Monroe
*Strega Nona by Tomie de Paola
Each lesson plan includes 3 days of plans with vocabulary terms, gestures to teach vocabulary, and comprehension questions. Also included is a vocabulary graphic organizer where students can write the new vocabulary terms and either draw a picture of each or write a definition.
These are perfect for leaving with a substitute teacher since they are ready to go... All you need to provide is the book!
