This 176-page packet helps tackle many of the questions surrounding close reading. It's designed specifically for primary students (grades K-2).

The packet is broken down as follows:

  • What is Close Reading?
  • Key Details About Close Reading
  • What Is the Teacher's Job?
  • How To Ask Text-Dependent Questions
  • How to Introduce Close Reading to Your Primary Students (this includes a great introductory lesson)
  • Text-Dependent Question Suggestions (fiction and non-fiction questions)

Then, I break it down even more for you:

  • What's a COLD READ?
  • What's a WARM READ?
  • What's a HOT READ?
  • How to Lead Discussions in Small Groups
  • How to Teach Students to Become Good Listeners in Small Groups
  • How to Teach Students to Provide Evidence While They Read

Finally, it's time to do some close reading in small groups!

Eight non-fiction articles are provided for close reading. The articles are about the following topics:

  • Anacondas
  • Thunderstorms
  • Chimpanzees
  • Astronauts
  • Rainforests
  • Volcanos
  • Ocean Animals
  • Turtles

Vocabulary words and reading response sheets are provided for each article. The reading response sheets require students to PROVIDE EVIDENCE in writing.

Five fiction stories are provided for you as well. The titles of the stories are:

  • Molly’s Dolly
  • The New Pup
  • No Peas, Please!
  • Percy the Princess
  • Camping Time!

Vocabulary words and reading response sheets are provided for each article. The reading response sheets require students to PROVIDE EVIDENCE in writing.

I've also included 14 independent practice sheets that help students practice close reading on their own.

Students can summarize, synthesize, question, and evaluate their close reading articles and stories using one of the 40 graphic organizer sheets included.

Please view the Preview to see some of what is included!

This packet is aligned with the Common Core, specifically tackling the following anchor standard:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
