This is a great activity to get your student engaged in a reading passage. Students are often told to "read closely" but they aren't always sure that that means. This pack gives students stories and a guide on how to complete a close read.
There are 2 reading comprehension stories in this pack. Each story is given at 2 different levels so you are able to differentiate in your classroom. Each reading comes with 2 short response questions (the same questions are used for both levels of the story), a close reading guide, and a summarizing graphic organizer!
Cupcake Mystery– reading comprehension offered at lexile 690 (Level N/O) and lexile 770 (Level O/P)
Making a Card– reading comprehension offered at lexile 860 (Level S) and lexile 900 (Level U/V)
Perfect for Valentine's Day or even just to teach close reading!
