Bundle 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.
