Help your students review and learn new close reading skills.
This unit is designed to provide extra practice to your reading comprehension curriculum. 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 activities focus on students practicing their close reading skills, marking the text when necessary. At this time of year, students should be building the reading patterns that they will use through out the year. There are original texts so they can mark the text.
The focus is on: Key Ideas, Main Idea. Text Features and Compare and Contrast. Later units will continue to build on these skills.
There are units of study in my store with more practice for most of these skills. This unit is a quick look back at what students have already learned and at new skills to work on.
Topics Include: Lightning, What was it Like to Live in a Castle,
The Summer Olympics, Halloween or Day of the Dead.
I planned these lessons with 2nd grade standards in mind, but the lessons would work for 3rd grade review.
**Please note: There is a companion book which focuses on comprehension skills for fiction. Or the two books can be purchased as a bundle.
