This pack is a great way to get first graders to learn how to read closely and look back in the text to answer questions. This pack is divided into 6 units. There are 5 close reads for each unit. Units 1-3 have easier texts since first graders are just learning how to read. These units contain simple questions for students to answer about the text. Units 4-6 are harder texts and contain harder questions. There are 30 close reads in this pack, 18 non-fiction and 12 fiction. There is also a vocabulary page and main idea page that could go with any passage. I used this pack in my first grade classroom to supplement Treasures Reading series but it would be great to go with any basal series. I also used the reading passages to practice fluency by having students read the same passage all week.
