New Years 2017 Informational Text Reading and Writing Activity Pack is a New Year's Around the World Common Core connected bundle of informational text and activities for close reading and writing. In this learning filled bundle you get:
•An informational text about how New Year's is celebrated in nine countries around the world.
•Follow-up writing activities, scaffolded for independence and success for all learners. Writing paper included.
•A fun crossword puzzle to drive students to repeated reading of the text, answer key included.

**Now with Read To Me, a feature that allows Macintosh, iPad and Windows users to read along with highlighted text. This is accessed very simply by clicking on a link at the end of the packet, or by entering the web address into a search engine.**
**BONUS: This packet includes my page 'Dig Into' close reading lesson and graphic organizer. This user-friendly tool can be used with any informational or non-fiction text on any subject.
'Dig Into' can be completed in one session or done over a period of days. It hits the goals of repeated close reading, vocabulary building and in-depth comprehension with repeated returns to the text embedded in the activities. Suitable for a wide range of ages from late elementary through middle school and beyond. It is perfect for substitute teachers and homeschooling families or anyone who appreciates carefully scaffolded activities.
