The activities in this packet are designed to help your students build their skill in comprehending both fiction and informational text. Each one is quick and easy to use with any book or passage, and very helpful in close reading. There is no preparation on your part other than making copies of the activities. They are perfect for whole group or small group instruction, as well as in a learning center. Since they are generic, the activities can be used over and over, with different texts and passages. They can be used to supplement other comprehension materials or can stand alone.
Finding and citing evidence from the text is an important component of Core standards and is key to most of these activities.
Graphic organizers included in activities have writing lines. At the end of the packet, there are blank copies of the organizers, with no lines.
