    Description

    Bundle and save almost 30% off of the individual prices!

    I have used these nonfiction close reading passages with my own fifth graders to promote more meaningful interactions with text. I purposefully wrote these texts to be high-interest and short so that the students would be motivated to read the text multiple times. The follow-up activities have gotten my students to go back to the text and dig deeper.

    How are my close reading texts unique?
    ★ Original, high-interest, and short passages written by me
    ★ Discreetly differentiated into five levels of difficulty to address a wide range of student abilities
    ★ Variety of engaging follow-up activities that require students to dig deeper into the passages
    ★ Paired text and activity for each topic
    ★ Format options for use with or without interactive notebooks

    Perfect for:
    ★ Whole group
    ★ Guided reading
    ★ ELA centers
    ★ Homework

    What is included?
    ★ Overview of close reading
    ★ Lesson plan pacing guides for whole group, small group, and homework options
    ★ Five levels of passages, second and third reading activities, writing response, paired text and activity, and answer keys for each topic
    ★ Half-page and notebook page header options for interactive notebooks
