Product Description
Our youngest readers can learn what it takes to read closely in the intermediate grades, and “Reading and Writing Up Close” will show you how! You won’t find superficial worksheets here. What you will find are meaningful text-dependent questions, writing tasks, and anchor charts based on mentor texts that primary students love. Learn how to use effective routines for reading, discussion, writing, and sharing that unlock deep comprehension and application for students who are still learning to read.

“Reading and Writing Up Close” was written by a National Board Certified Reading Specialist and Educational Consultant to provide teachers with the close reading resources they need for beginning readers and writers. “Up Close” lessons are designed to meet K-2 Common Core State Standards across text types. Set 1 includes lessons for Library Lion, My Lucky Day, and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.

Each lesson is designed around a different mentor text and includes:
- text-dependent questions
- two CCSS writing tasks
- corresponding anchor chart(s)
- additional anchor chart template(s)
- lesson planning template

Full color anchor chart samples take the guesswork out of planning and save valuable prep time. Anchor chart templates serve as graphic organizers to help student deconstruct mentor texts. Teachers can also use them to create mini anchor charts with document cameras or other forms of technology for paperless, digital resources.

A 12-page teacher’s guide explains “Up Close” lesson components and learning routines, and provides a sample instructional sequence to get you started “Reading and Writing Up Close.” Primary Classroom Teachers, Home Schoolers, Special Educators, Intervention Teachers, Reading Specialists, Literacy Coaches, and Teachers of English Learners will find a great resource in "Reading and Writing Up Close." Try it out today!
