Please see the PREVIEW above for an idea of everything included!

If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this 55-page packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful informational text reading unit.

Each of the 5 passages included in this resource is provided in two differentiated levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. The level is given for each passage, along with a guide that provides the corresponding grade level for Lexile levels. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!

This packet includes:

• 5 December-Themed Informational Passages (each passage has 2 differentiated versions)

• 5 Close Reading Activities for each passage

• End of Unit Culminating Writing Activities

• Guide Sheet

• Annotation Guide

• Answer Keys

This packet includes these informational, high-interest, close reading passages:

• The Pony Express (December 7, Letter Writing Day)

• The Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, Pearl Harbor Day)

• Maple Syrup: From Tree to Table (December 7, National Maple Syrup Day)

• Christmas Around the World (December 25, Christmas Day)

• Boxing Day (December 26, Boxing Day)

This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for each passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities. Each passage and its corresponding activities offer a full-week's worth of close reading.
