Close Reading Bookmark This is a bookmark that I designed for my students that outlines some steps for close reading. Close reading is a huge part of the Engage NY curriculum and supporting students with this skill will greatly enhance their ability to meet CCSS. This is designed for upper elementary students and was provided to students after teaching several lessons on close reading. They now use these as a reference to support their continued use of close reading strategies. *********************************************************************** Copyright © 2015 Keep Calm and Teach 5th Grade All rights reserved by the author.

Character Analysis Essay Graphic Organizer

Character Analysis Essay Graphic Organizer I created this product to use while writing character analysis essays in my 5th grade classroom. It could easily be used with younger students as well with additional teaching and support. This graphic organizer is to be used after students read a story and match character traits to the main events in a story. They will need explicit instruction in identifying character traits before completing this organizer. After learning about character traits, students can use this organizer to identify different character traits present in one character throughout a story. This organizer can then be used to model ways to turn their ideas into paragraphs, resulting in a complete character analysis essay. *********************************************************************** Copyright © 2015 Keep Calm and Teach 5th Grade All rights reserved by the author.
