This product is designed to work as a supplement to our Holiday themed close reads. The titles included in the Christmas Close Read bundle are as follows:
The Polar Express
A Very Grinchy Christmas
Mission Close Reads can be used as a tool to prepare your learners to dig in to reading closely. Use this to set the stage for reading and to give purpose for listening. This product helps to clearly define expectations of students to set them up for greater success - using a Smart Board or Promethian Board. Pages were added on days 3 and 4 so that you can choose to make your own questions or prompts.
Remember that nurturing these higher level skills takes time and many different techniques. Therefore, vocabulary words, questions, response sheets, graphic organizers, coloring pages, partner responses, Smart Board/Promethian Board displays and MORE are included for you to differentiate your instruction.
Again, this is designed to be used alongside our Holiday themed Close Read bundle. This is on-going series that will span the entire season and is a growing bundle. If you love it and see a difference in your level of student engagement and learning, please consider investing in more of our close reads and case files. We hope you enjoy! :)
Please note: This unit is closely aligned with Common Core and TNCore's Summer 2015 Training, specifically targeting anchor standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1
