    This bundle is a combination of ALL my themed Close Reading Passages packs. {Ocean Animals, Space, Community Helpers, Camping} This pack is a bundle of my 4 close reading themed packs for 20% off!

    This is a great resource to use during the school year to incorporate Close Reading into your Kindergarten or 1st Grade classroom. Each edition includes 5 different lesson plans,themed passages and graphic organizers to use for Close Reading lessons. These passages are great for small group reading lessons or whole group read alouds. Students will have the opportunity to dig deeper and show true comprehension of each passage through completion of the graphic organizers by providing specific evidence from the text. A variety of texts (fiction, non fiction and poetry) are included within each edition so students can be exposed to different types of texts. The passages are written at a level that should be challenging for students to read on their own so instead you can read the passages to your students and complete the close reading lessons together.

    Close Reading is an important piece of addressing the Common Core Standards as it requires students to truly comprehend the text by digging deeper and using specific evidence from the text to answer comprehension questions. We want to prepare our students to not only be good readers but also to be good at comprehending the text. Close Reading in Kindergarten and 1st Grade is similar to Shared Reading where you can read aloud a text but with a specific focus for each rereading of the text related to a Common Core Standard. This pack provides you with all the materials needed to conduct 5 different spring-themed Close Reading lessons. Each with a different focus for the 1st read, 2nd read and 3rd read of the text, digging deeper each time while addressing different Common Core Stands with evidence cited from the text. Students will show their evidence from the text via the graphic organizers provided.
