This product contains a double-spaced copy of the Sorting Hat Song from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, which allows students write notes in the margin as they do the close reading. I used it to gather information about the traits of those in each Hogwarts House.
I suggest doing the reading with the class using a smart board or projecting it onto a white board. Take notes on it together!
Also included is a graphic organizer, in which the students can write and analyze important lines and words that describe the Hogwarts' Houses.
