I created this seasonal close reading resource to help students read complex texts independently and for a specific purpose.

It contains everything you need to implement close reading in your classroom!

Leveled Passages
Included in this resource are four fall- and Halloween-themed reading passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate for your students! The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels which can be found in the top left corner of each passage.

Implementation Printables
I’ve also included a step-by-step implementation guide. I’ve researched several strategies for close reading and have developed a process that will make your life easier, and help your students develop skills to read for deeper meaning.

In addition to the step-by-step implementation guide, I’ve included an Understanding the Standards Teacher Guide. This printable helps teachers understand the purpose of each reading, and how each reading ties into specific Common Core Anchor Standards. I’ve outlined what each student should focus on and the learning targets for each read.

Annotation Guides
These printable annotation guides are a resource to help students quickly annotate or mark up the text using symbols. I’ve included two different levels of the printables.

Text-Dependent Questions, Writing Prompts, and Graphic Organizers
Each passage includes text-dependent questions for each of the three themes or categories in the Common Core Anchor Standards (Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas). The questions require students to cite evidence from the text to support their answers.

In addition to the text-dependent questions, I’ve also included graphic organizers for key ideas and details, vocabulary, main idea, and more!

      Thanks so much, Alicia! :)

  1. Hi- I just purchased the fall/thanksgiving close reading set. This may be a silly question- but do you do all the 3 readings/activities in one day or spread them out over a period of days? I’m new to 4th grade, coming form lower ele so I’m just getting the hang of things. Thanks so much- I love your products and blog! :)
