Here’s my close reading FREEBIE to help with test prep… Are you teaching students to analyze persuasive texts, identify examples of persuasive language and the effect that language has on the reader? Want to give students concrete examples of comparison, causality, parallelism, misleading statements, exaggerated statements, and contradictory statements using a high-interest text? Look no further! Here’s a new lesson, “A Baby Boa?,” with embedded test prep. The close reading passage is FREE below. Just click the image to download. You can find the foldable, skill activity, poster, vocabulary activity, and standardized test-prep reading comprehension questions that go with the passage in my TPT store.
Ready to WIN a treat for your classroom? You can order books or spoil yourself with this Amazon gift card! You’re a teacher. You work HARD. You deserve it!
