Product Description
I have used these close reading texts with my own fifth graders to promote more meaningful interactions with text. I purposefully wrote these texts to be high-interest and short so that the students would be motivated to read the text multiple times. The follow-up activities have gotten my students to go back to the text and dig deeper.

NOTE: These texts and activities are the exact same ones as my other monthly close reading products. I have combined the print and online versions for this combo.

How are my close reading texts unique?
★ Original, high-interest, and short passages written by me
★ Discreetly differentiated into five levels of difficulty to address a wide range of student abilities
★ Variety of engaging follow-up activities that require students to dig deeper into the passages
★ Paired text and activity for each topic
★ Format options for use with or without interactive notebooks
★ Online option

Perfect for:
★ Whole group
★ Guided reading
★ ELA centers
★ Flipped classroom
★ Homework

What is included?
★ Overview of close reading
★ Lesson plan pacing guides for whole group, small group, and homework options
★ Five levels of passages, second and third reading activities, writing response, paired text and activity, and answer keys for each topic
