This unit contains one close reading activity for each of the 30 stories in the 2014 edition of the Journeys First Grade Reading Program. The four new stories that replaced four stories in the previous edition are included in this unit. Students are asked in each close read to dig deeper and search for words phonetically, look for specific sentences and to relate to the story content in a personal way. The thumbnails above include a list of stories in this unit. Be sure to check the year of the edition that you are using. The 2013 edition is also available. Students will learn to follow the format quickly, and teachers will be assured that they are teaching a reading strategy that will increase fluency and comprehension.
