More on Close Reading!!

So I guess I am a bit obsessed with doing close reading with my kinders! This is the Polar Bear one we did this week. We do our highlighting on day 2 of our read. I am still going one step at a time and working as a group to identify our important vocabulary from the passage. I love their illustrations!

The kinders then worked on this alphabetical order paper just to reinforce some of the vocabulary!

Same thing with this labeling activity.

It was so awesome to hear them using words like carnivore and summarizing the passage! Just amazing the things they get!

Here are a few of our Snowman centers and activities. Everything except the mitten art is in one of our snowman units!

This is an addition write the room activity.

This is their morning work with the snowy theme.

This was a simple size ordering activity.

You can grab the snowy stuff on sale here from our TPT store!

Also we are linking up over at Doodlebugs!
Much love

  2. I haven't used close reading as a specific strategy, but it looks like a great one. I will have to try it.

    1. My district is really big on close reading and it is big on CCSS!
