This lesson plan is created for students in kindergarten- 3rd grade. The close read lesson plans can be used for a small group or whole group. The lessons and activities are flexible and can meet the needs for different levels of students.
The close read is designed to be a 2-day plan. Day 1 is focused on listen and reading comprehension. Day 2 was created for a re-read and for students to use text evidence skills to locate answers within the text.
The other activities can be used as group work or independent student work.
