Help your students review and learn about close reading skills.
This bundle includes materials to provide extra practice to your reading comprehension curriculum with fiction and non-fiction materials. It follows my own classroom procedures for reviewing and introducing new comprehension skills the first couple of months of school. The materials could be used any time of year if your curriculum map is different from mine.
The focus is on students practicing their close reading skills, marking the text when necessary. At this time of year, students should begin to build the reading patterns that they will use through out the year. I have provided original stories and informative texts so students can mark the text as they read. Activities provide practice with the focus on:
Key Ideas, Main Idea. Text Features and Compare and Contrast in informative text and Retell, Story Structure, Character Response and Writing in fiction.
Its focus is on 2nd grade, but it would be a helpful review or good intervention materials for 3rd graders, also.
**I have individual units of study in my store which have more extensive practice with most of these skills.
*Please note: The Informative Text and Fiction books can be purchased together or individually in my store.
