Teaching Reading Comprehension is essential in every classroom. Close reading is an important skill for students but can be difficult at times for students. This file has everything you need to get your student reading CLOSE with any text!
This file is a 17 page download for directions on leading a close reading group with elementary students. This file talks you through 8 steps for your students to use while reading slowly and closely with a book.
Included you will find the following:
- What is a Close Reading?
- Choosing Passages
- Supply list
- 1 passage before the reading.
- 1 example of what the passage might look like after the reading.
- Steps 1-8 posters (I put into a flip book for my guided reading table)
- A Printable Bookmark with all of the steps & directions
This is a file that can be used with both fiction and nonfiction books, poetry and articles.
It is a perfect way to teach your students to think and prove their thoughts while reading!
