Close Reading Summary Practice; Nonfiction
GREAT small group lesson for getting OBSERVED for grades 1- 5!
I like to teach multiple skills when I have the chance ~ don't we all?
This activity also helps build fluency, comprehension and close reading & writing skills ~ for students of all abilities.
Includes worksheets and colorful lesson pages for grades 1 and 2 and grades 3 - 5 regular and special education students.
I made up this activity to help my students summarize nonfiction text and ask and answer questions; all three skills are Common Core Standards for grades 1 - 5.
I use this lesson over and over with my students. I just change the reading passage! I use them with small groups, and I have my whole class use them independently. The worksheets are very versatile.
INCLUDED in this packet..
TWO differentiated COLORFUL lesson guides for students and teachers. I print and laminate mine at Staples.
THREE colorful examples of a completed worksheet that can be used as a model with students.
ONE page of DIRECTIONS for CLOSE READING any nonfiction text.
TWO differentiated worksheets that can be used with ANY nonfiction text and won't empty your your print cartridge.
