Help students enhance their close reading skills with the 40 short, non-fiction passages in this handy activity book! Designed for second-grade students, these activities help them acquire the skills that have been set forth by Common Core State Standards. According to those standards, students should be able to read closely in order to tell what a text says explicitly. From there, students should be able to make logical references and cite specific examples to support the conclusions they make.
Each of the 40 passages in this book, which is available in eBook and regular book formats, is followed up by a series of comprehension questions that target crucial skills and provide ample amounts of repeated practice. With regular use, students can learn to identify main ideas and supporting details, distinguish between facts and opinions, use contextual clues and much more.
Review the completed pages with students on a regular basis. Encourage them to explain their thinking for each correct answer!
