Free Christmas - Close Reading Passage : This product contains a close reading passage about Santa.
The students will have to:
*read the text 3 times and color a star after each reading ( for fluency)
* answer 3 text based questions in writing and color the answer in the text (the evidence)
Before you read the passage with your students point out the words " prepare" , "tonight", "bought" since they are harder to decode than the other words in the passage. You can write them on the board or on index cards.
