Since close reading is such a big topic in ELA instruction it is important to have students learn how to go deeper into the text. These task cards allow for that opportunity in a guided practice model. While completing a read aloud the teacher can pause at multiple spots and have students complete the task cards. These cards have students interact with a partner to have a discussion regarding the story.
Also in this file are academic vocabulary word wall cards so students can become familiar with words and use them during their discussions.
