This downloadable product from Lucky to be in First includes: * 2 high interest passages about Chimpanzees
** 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! **
