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 bundle includes:
- 5 Informational Passages (2 Differentiated Levels)
- 5 Days of Close Reading Activities
- Text Dependent Questions
- Written Response
- Teacher Guide Sheet
- Annotation Guide (full page and ½ page)

This packet includes these informational, high-interest, close reading passages:
- Ice Cream! Ice Cream (Month of June, National Ice Cream Month)
- The Mystery of UFOs (June 2, World UFO Day)
- A Declaration of Independence (July 4, Independence Day)
- Chocolate: From Tree to Treat (July 7: Chocolate Day)
- Amelia Earhart: Woman of Flight (July 24, Amelia Earhart 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.
