FUN with Non-Fiction Text! Students need explicit instruction and practice with finding evidence in text in order to answer text-dependent questions.

This mini unit will teach students to go back to the text in a thoughtful, careful and precise way. The text dependent questions are directly under the text passage. This reinforces students going back to the text for their answer. A colorful poster is also included for whole group practice. You can choose from two different styles of posters and word cards.

This mini unit includes:

*Connected Writing

*Write the Room/ Roll the dice Word Cards and Recording Sheet

*Content Specific Vocabulary Fun Sheet

*Main Topic Writing Sheet

*Differentiate your instruction!

Choose from 2 Levels of Text-Dependent Questions:

LEVEL 1- Cuttin’ it Close- Cut and Glue

LEVEL 2- Color the Evidence

*Colorful Classroom Poster (2 different styles)

* Vocabulary Word Cards (2 different styles)

Close reading involves focused reading and rereading of a text for the purpose of understanding key points, gathering evidence, and building knowledge.
