Take a Journey Through a Text!

We all want our students to read, but wouldn't it be great to have them REALLY read and dig deep into their texts?

I am extremely excited about this newest creation, as it will be VERY helpful in the next few weeks for review and assessing what kids know and are able to do {or not do}. We have some board members and business folks visiting a couple of classrooms (MINE included). During their visit, they want to see how we are utilizing technology. Well, I need to review during this time and touch on some areas with a few students who are not grasping certain skills. With this in mind, I wanted to create something of quality that can be used time and time again.

Putting all of that in perspective, I designed the "Take a Journey Through Your Text" activity set to allow students the opportunity to close read and dig deeper into a text in a variety of ways.

This was created to be used on multiple occasions & can be used with ANY text. These activities are most suitable for grade 3+

This "Take a Journey Through Your Text" close reading activity set covers the following standards:

Grades 3+
* ELACC RL1
* ELACC RL2
* ELACC RL3
* ELACC RL4
* ELACC RL6

This set includes the following items:

* Directions for Show What I Know Tech Method
* Directions for Text Journey (paper/pencil format)
* Show What I Know Menu # 1
* Show What I Know Menu # 2
* Rubric for Show What I Know Tech Method
* Rubric for Text Journey (paper/pencil format)

Each activity calls for students to close read in order to site evidence in various ways, touching on each of the standards above. This is a great assessment activity, could be used as homework, or to just enhance your lessons along the way.
