Close Reading–Spring Edition (and a FREEBIE!)

HOORAY! I just uploaded my Close Reading Packet for Spring.

Slide1

Here’s what is included:

Eight non-fiction articles are provided for close reading. The articles are about the following topics:

Signs of Spring
Tornadoes
Butterflies
Sheep
Rabbits
Ducks
Earthworms
Hummingbirds
Tulips

FYI: These are set up just like my original close reading packet! You can read all about how I introduced/implemented close reading in my classroom HERE. You can find a free “starter kit” at my TPT shop HERE.

Two fictional stories and three fictional plays are provided for you as well. I am SO excited to introduce my students to the spring plays. They’ll be building their fluency, learning new vocabulary words, AND answering text-dependent questions. I think learning their parts and acting them out will allow them to know the plays “inside and out.”

The titles of the stories/plays are:
Bird Blues!
Fly, Kite, Fly!
The Littlest Bunny! (play)
Nervous Nancy (play)
At The Pond (play)

Here’s a “closer look” at the play Nervous Nancy. Vocabulary words are provided, along with text-dependent questions that require students to answer by finding evidence from the play.
