Make your close reading lesson more interactive with station rotations! Stations are easy to do in your classroom with this ready-to-use printable resource. The lesson plan includes directions for preparation and carrying out close reading annotation stations. All you have to do is choose the text, make the copies, group the students, and you're off!
This resource includes 5 stations with annotation guides, directions, station signs, and project ideas. The station signs are in black-white as well as color for visuals. I've also included extension discussion prompts for those stations that might get done early. This works with any text (informative or fiction) that you might choose for your classroom.
