The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter is a timeless classic!
Close Reading is my favorite thing! Students need explicit instruction and practice with finding evidence in text in order to answer text-dependent questions.
This mini lessons builds comprehension by teaching 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 reading and writing pack includes:
*Write the Room Word Cards and Recording Sheet
*Choose from 2 Levels of Text-Dependent Questions:
Cuttin’ it Close- Cut and Glue or 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.
