I have shared a sample close read map before, but below you will see how each of the sample close reads align to the above mention comprehension focuses. If you have chosen your own close read texts you can easily align those texts to the above mentioned comprehension focuses…if the book is “meaty” enough. You’ll notice that a lot of the books we are/have been reading to our kids are fun but can lack these comprehension focuses! I have listed the ten comprehension focuses for each close read and if they are covered in that close read they will be underlined. You can download the sample comprehension map by clicking below!
And I will leave you with this powerful quote..I shared on Facebook, but it’s worth sharing twice! 🙂 Have a great week and I’ll be back soon! 🙂
