This special unit contains close reading and comprehension activities for nine nonfiction December themed stories. These activities will help students learn how to reread a text and dig deeper into its content and meaning. Students will use crayons to highlight or underline selected words and sentences. They will “pair and share” with a partner about the content of the stories. Students will be asked to connect to the story in writing, as well as pose a question related to the story. Don’t miss out on this special seasonal resource. It will make “digging deeper” into the meaning of a nonfiction text, both practical and fun!
