Close reading is the reading and re-reading of text to gather meaning and determine the author’s purpose. It is learning how to highlight important vocabulary words and using context clues to figure out the meaning of them. It is also providing evidence from text to support answers when answering comprehension questions or to show comprehension of the text. These skills are very important for early readers.

Each text is leveled for differentiation. The reading texts are ordered from easiest to most difficult by topic with 3 reading passages per topic.  *****************************************************************************
