End of the Year Close Reading Passages - Stories and Writing Activities contains four stories for your students to read, contemplate, and discuss for the end of the school year in the spring and the arrival of summer vacation. In this product you will find:
A Discussion Guide to help you lead a discussion about the stories with your students.
A Close Reading Short Stories handout to help your students read and comprehend each text.
Four three-page stories, including vocabulary to look up and learn, questions for contemplation and discussion, and a space for taking notes.
A New Word Log for students to use to keep track of the new words they have learned through these stories.
The Big Test
Close Reading is a central focus of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Students learn to immerse themselves in the text, think about what the author is saying, and pick out important details in the text in a methodical way.
I really appreciate your purchase, and I hope your students enjoy the stories! Have a great spring and end to the school year!
