This handout is based on the 5th grade Wonders McGraw-Hill reading series. This is a weekly handout that I like to use when teaching the short story in the Reading/Writing Workshop book. It provides guidance as I am teaching the skills and my students are doing a close reading. Each week's handout is two pages (I usually copy it front/back) and includes the following:
-Questions related to the comprehension skill
-Chart to complete related to the vocabulary strategy
-Section related to the essential question
-Section to make a text-to-self connection
-Brief vocabulary review chart
**This download is a sample and includes the Unit 1 Week 1 close reading questions for the story in the Reading/Writing Workshop textbook ("A Fresh Idea").**
You can find the complete set of Workshop close reading questions for Unit 1 in my store.
