FUN with Nonfiction text!
Close Reading in the Early Elementary Grades!
Close Reading is one of my favorite things! Students need explicit instruction and practice with finding evidence in text in order to answer text-dependent questions.
These mini lessons 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. Colorful posters are also included for whole group practice.
Space Close Reading Includes:
11 Non-Fiction Text Passages
Each Science topic includes:
*Write the Room Word Cards and Recording Sheet
*Content Specific Vocabulary Fun Sheet

Please open the preview and read each passage to decide if the text is appropriate for your students before you purchase.
Close reading involves focused reading and rereading of a text for the purpose of understanding key points, gathering evidence, and building knowledge.
