PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Strengthen comprehension through close reading!

1 PASSAGE FREE!

Close reading requires students to dig deeper into a text. It is becoming increasingly popular due to districts adopting the Common Core State Standards. These non-fiction passages are designed to help you implement close reads in your classroom.

Encourage (or require!) your students to read these multiple times.

Students will:
read the story (half-page stories to save paper and ink)
‣ circle tricky words and define 1 tricky word by using context clues
answer comprehension questions, finding evidence in the text
summarize what you learned

3 Graphic Organizers for each story
‣ (Visualizing) "What I saw when I read ___" - 2 sentences given, draw a picture for each
‣ (Vocab) "Expert Words from ____" - Students pick a word, write what you think it means, look it up in the dictionary.
‣ (Main Idea) "My notes about ____" - Write the main idea and 4 details from the text that support it.
