Product Description

Turk and Runt Close Reading Activities

If your students love the book, "Turk and Runt" by Lisa Wheeler, they will love these close reading activities that are specifically built to compliment this silly story! It was designed to be used as a close reading routine, each day building on the previous day’s reading and at the end, students work to respond and create based on the text. Although it was designed this way, the unit does not have to be used this way in your classroom.
