Product Description

This product was designed for two reasons – to maintain my student’s attention and to give them more exposure to close reading. My students love reading and listening to stories about my grandpa, and I thought your students would enjoy it as well. It truly has a unique “voice” to it! Stories from previous generations have always been a treasure to me, so I want to pass that on to my students – especially those who may not have elders in the picture!

There are five passages in this product. They have been aligned to Common Core Informational Text Reading standards 1-5, but you don't have to teach CCSS to enjoy this product! The Lexile levels range from 750 to 880, making them ideal for grades 4-6. However, depending on your students’ reading abilities, they may also be appropriate for 7th and 8th graders or even advanced 3rd graders. 

Close reading passage are meant to help students gain a deeper understanding of the texts they read. The students will read each one-page story up to three times, although you can ask them to read it more or less depending on your needs. 

Each passage comes with three sets of directions and questions. The first read requires students to answer who, what, where, and when questions. The second read asks students to answer why and how questions. On the third read, the students are asked to respond to a reading response prompt that requires higher-level thinking.

An answer key has been provided as a reference only. However, you may find that your students answers differ slightly, and that is perfectly acceptable! 

Finally, there are two pages for note-taking at the end of this product. These can be used if your students struggle with marking the text or if you want to use the stories for multiple classes. 

Thanks for looking!

I have PreK-6th grade experience. I have taught Kindergarten, 6th grade, Reading Recovery, Title I math and reading, 5th grade inclusion special education, and a multi-grade classroom of ELL students. For a year I was a K-6 Elementary Principal at two schools and district K-12 Special Education Director. Starting in the fall of 2015, I am staying home to work online while raising our son. It's an amazing job! =)

I am a professor for CE4Teachers. Come check us out

I used to teach Asian students during the evenings, weekends, and summer. Using Skype and other online tools, I taught students from age 6-20. It was an interesting experience


Finally, I blog over at HoJo's Teaching Adventures. Check it out! :)
