Your students practice finding text evidence while reading original fiction and non-fiction passages. Students can struggle when learning to go back into the text and find evidence. The lessons provide graphic organizers or questions to be answered. For one lesson, they identify the correct choices that prove the text-evidence for a given statement These quick exercises provide an opportunity to practice close reading skills with a focus on finding text-evidence. These activities are designed to be completed in 20 – 30 minutes.
The lessons can be done while students are learning or reviewing comprehension skills: retell, character response, key ideas, main idea, supporting details, comparing and contrasting. The passages are short so the exercises can be done quickly to reinforce regular
The lessons could also provide practice for intervention or enrichment small groups. I had 2nd graders in mind when writing the passages, but they would also work for 3rd grade review.
