The Mitten by Jan Brett is one of my favorite winter read alouds!
This pack is the perfect addition to your winter units!
Pair The Mitten with this non-fiction text!
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.
This mini unit includes:
*Write the Room 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
Close reading involves focused reading and rereading of a text for the purpose of understanding key points, gathering evidence, and building knowledge.
