My Cat Read and Write (Cut and Paste) Close Reading ---
In this five page Read and Write pack, students will read the one page story and color the pictures. Then there are two pages with five sentences on each page about the story. Each sentence has a missing word. At the end of each sentence, there are two words for students to choose the correct missing word. Students will circle the word that correctly completes the sentence matching the story on the first page, and then write the correct word in the blank.
The next page is a cut and paste activity. Five sentences from the story are shown with a missing word. The five missing words are at the bottom of the page for students to cut and glue the correct word to complete the sentence.
For both of the above activities, have students go back and find the sentence in the story and underline or highlight the sentence to show where they found the answer in the story (find text evidence – prove it). This will help them complete the activities with the correct answer by going back to the text which is what close reading is all about (digging deeper).
The last page is a writing activity that asks two questions: 1. What does a cat do? 2. What kind of books do you like to read? This writing activity gives students the opportunity to make text to self connections.
This is a great reading and comprehension check for guided reading, a mini lesson, a literacy center, or homework. It is also great for introducing close reading to look back into the story to find the answers.
