This is a Non Fiction Close Reading about Raccoons . Using Close Reading in the Primary Grades can feel overwhelming. This is a way that I have found to be effective in my classroom. I have included my outline for the routine to use this Close Reading over 3-5 day period. There are several extension activities to extend the learning even further.
