If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful informational text reading unit.

The informational passage included in this resource is provided in two differentiated reading levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!

• 5 Days of Close Reading Activities

• Guide Sheet

• Annotation Guide

• Answer Keys

October 31st is Halloween Day. This packet is perfect for celebrating this holiday, a mini reading unit, or any time of year! It has been a great hit with many teachers and reluctant readers.

This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities.
