The PDF works with the close reading strategy of "Notice and Note". This activity works best after the students have had some practice with Notice and Note, before reading a chapter book or long piece of literature.
There are four original, fiction passages and four questions after each passage. No clip art to hint at any theme or signposts.
The Notice and Note fictional close reading strategy helps readers make sense of character traits, themes, motives, foreshadowing, and many other important fiction elements.
I've used this with general ed. third grade and gifted ed second grade. If Notice and Note is new to your students, you could stretch this to fourth and fifth grade as an easy introduction.
