Three close reading passages for July and August: Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Summer Olympics, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, and Honey Bees; nonfiction passages. Each passage includes three days of response pages with answer sheets; day 1 focuses on main idea and details, day 2 focuses on vocabulary and text structure, and day 3 focuses on theme, author craft and inferencing.
No prep materials make it easy to implement close reading in your upper elementary classroom.
This set of passages is also part of a close reading bundle that includes passages for each month of the year and more. You can find this bundle here:
