I created this 5 day unit to outline how I have taught close reading to my students. We teach 5th grade English language learners, some of whom have special needs. Therefore, they are all at different levels in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This product offers you a differentiated approach to helping students tackle those higher level texts with confidence! You can use these in conjunction with my close reading posters (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Common-Core-Close-Reading-Steps-Printable-Posters-English-and-Spanish-454163) for quick student and teacher reference at any time of the school day. If you need clarification, guidance, or have any other feedback, feel free to leave it in the Q & A.
