If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this Close Reading Bundle for the Year truly is for you! It has everything you need for complete, successful informational text reading units every, single month.
Each of the 5 passages included in each month's resource is provided in two differentiated Lexile levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. The Lexile level is given for each passage, along with a guide that provides the corresponding grade level for Lexile levels. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!
Please see the PREVIEW above for an idea of everything included.
Each month's packet includes:
• 5 Monthly-Themed Informational Passages (each passage has 2 differentiated versions)
• 5 Close Reading Activities for each passage
• End of Unit Culminating Writing Activities
• Guide Sheet
• Annotation Guide
• Answer Keys
Each packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned.
Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for each passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities. Each passage and its corresponding activities offer a full-week's worth of close reading.
This Year-Long Bundle includes the following Monthly-Themed Close Reading Units (click on each one to take a better look):
