Product Description

This set of 40 Differentiated Close Reading Comprehension Passages will get your kiddos excited about reading and learning about animals!

Camp Comprehension: Animals is a pack to help young readers practice the important skill of close reading. This Common Core aligned pack includes 40 differentiated stories (20 animals - 2 levels for each animal). Two passages for the same animal will allow you to differentiate and meet the needs of the readers in your room! 

Close Reading is an engaging way to help students work on building their comprehension. The Common Core Standards ask students to dig deeper into informational texts by answering questions and citing evidence. Use Camp Comprehension: Animals to get your kids excited about reading! 

This downloadable product from Lucky to be in First includes:
* 40 high interest passages (2 for each of the following animals)
* ants
* frogs
* sloths
* owls
* chameleons
* tigers
* elephants
* bees
* tortoises
* ladybugs
* butterflies
* fish
* sharks
* dolphins
* sea turtles
* orcas
* emperor penguins
* lions
* flamingos
* leopard seals
* Answer Key for each passage 

** Please note: Close Reading is a challenging skill for young students to master. I use these non-fiction passages WITH my students during small group reading time. These passages may be appropriate for higher level 1st graders or independent second graders. Based on the needs of your own students, you may choose to use these high interest passages whole group, small group or independently! ** 

Stay tuned for more Camp Comprehension “Sessions!”
