Product Description
This packet is perfect for teaching summaries and close reading. My students LOVED all of the activities! This is perfect to use with small groups for intervention or as your reading lesson for each day!

This unit includes:

*One week of summarizing lesson plans
*5 activities that align with the lessons
*Superhero craft
*One week of close reading lesson plans
*5 activities that align with close reading
*3 close reading passages
*Short assessment

There are two weeks worth of plans. Students will learn to summarize one week and close read the following week. There are learning targets and worksheets/activities included in this packet to help students learn the lessons.

My students dressed as superheroes and wore the masks that are included in this packet and we made capes from Dollar Tree tablecloths. They had a blast and wore them each time they read and summarized. They felt like they were saving the world one summary at a time!

This packet also has a fun superhero craft for students to complete. There is a short quiz at the end of the unit you can give as a quick check.

I hope you find this unit useful. Please look at the preview before purchasing.

I made this for second grade students, but could definitely be used with older students.

Thank you for purchasing this. I appreciate your support!
