Has your district implemented (or will your district implementing) the practice of Close Reading? If so, this product is a wonderful way to display the steps involved in Close Reading through the use of "fun, hand-made" Close Reading characters. Additionally, the posters included in this set explain the "basics" of what is involved in the process of Close Reading, which is helpful for both you as the teacher and your students. The posters can be printed, laminated, and hung in your classroom to refer to when you engage in the process of Close Reading with your students. (Suggestion for display: Hang the "cover page," below that hang the two layer 1 posters side by side, below that the two Layer 2 posters side by side, and below that the two Layer 3 posters side by side.)
Also included in this poster pack is a single poster that sums up what Close Reading means through words and illustrations. And, last but not least, also included in this poster pack are enlarged versions of the Close Reading characters without backgrounds or words. These pages can be printed so that you can cut out and display the individual characters in a different area of your classroom if you so choose.
