Reading Skills Set

I noticed when I started this post that I hadn't posted anything since the end of November and I have to apologize for that. I was scheduled to have a C-section in January but God had other plans for this little family of mine. On December 8th I had my baby girl, Adelyn Reece, 6 weeks early. It can only be considered a blessing from God that she was perfectly healthy. The doctors kept telling us they were amazed that she was doing as well as she was. God is so good!

I'm on maternity leave until the middle of March so I won't have a lot to post between now and then but I do have a great deal going on with Educents for the next couple of weeks that I wanted to share with you. I have bundled 3 of my reading skill packets, Close Reading, Figuring out the Main Idea, and Safari Adventure. Right now you can get all 3 of these packets for just $12.00 which is 40% off. But.......keep reading to the end to see how you can get them for just $2.00. Just click on the picture below or {HERE} to be taken to the bundle.

Here is a little more about each individual packet:

With the implementation of common core standards close reading is a must now. I have started this with my class and can see a tremendous growth in their reading skills. The college and career readiness (CCR) anchor standards are often overlooked and the first one states that students must read closely. This packet will help you do just that along with covering the rest of the college and career readiness (CCR) anchor standards. The passages are suitable for 1st-4th grades. With some 1st graders it may be beneficial to scaffold the reading by breaking up the passage into chunks. You might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and read and discuss as you go.

What’s included:
What is close reading
Close reading includes
What are text dependent questions
How I use this in my classroom
Be a text talker poster(2 versions)
Show your thinking poster(2 versions)
A close reader is poster
Talk about it poster (for partner talk)

Article Titles Included (all with at least 2 pages of questions):
