With this packet, you can integrate the Winter Sports in your instruction! Each of the 4 one-page articles requires students to reread three times (to self or with a partner, if needed) for increased fluency and annotate the text to answer the first two questions. The third question is always open ended, requiring students to use evidence from the text to support their answer. Each article comes with its own graphic organizer, which can be used during the 3 fluency readings (add a bit each time), as a small group activity to facilitate discussion of the text, or as an independent activity.

This set includes:
Pages 1-3: Intro, A Note From Jen (Teaching Tips for Close Reading), Lexile Levels for each passage
Pages 4-5: "Take a Look Inside Ice Hockey," Graphic Organizer
Pages 6-7: "The Biathlon - A Challenging Sport," Graphic Organizer
Pages 8-9: "Take a Closer Look at the Ski Jump," Graphic Organizer
Pages 10-11: "The Luge - A Captivating and Dangerous Sport," Graphic Organizer
Page 12: Credits/Terms of Use
