Use this free anchor chart as a step by step guide to reading paired passages. At first, the full page anchor chart can be used in whole group, close reading lessons. After students are more familiar with reading paired passages, the charts can be used independently. At this time, students use the mini versions of the charts. They can be kept in their readers response notebooks or taped to their desks. It may also me helpful to send a copy of the anchor chart home with students if you assign passages for homework. This will allow parents to see what language is being used in the classroom regarding paired passages. Black line versions and full color versions are both included with this download.
