This colorful "digging deeper" anchor chart is a perfect wall reference helping students understand what is meant by "Close Reading" as referred to in the Common Core State Standards. "Close Reading" is the first two words of the first set of anchor standards in the Common Core for grades Kindergarten through High School!
Here it is, straight from the CCSS:
"Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.”
And, by the way...kids love dogs!

You get three different options for using this anchor chart:
The cut-and-glue kit. Print it out on standard paper, trim it a little and put it together. Laminate it and you'll be able to use it year after year!
The cut-and-glue version can be trimmed to fit a standard flip-chart easel...approximately 27 x 34 inches (68 x 86 cm).
The bulletin board kit. Print, trim and create a unique and engaging display that will capture students' attention.
I also include a small version for you to 3-hole punch and put in a notebook. Your students will have access to the information even after you take down the anchor chart.
Laminate and use it forever!

Close reading is what all good readers do to deeply understand text… and this anchor chart provides the reference kids need read closely, successfully.
