DIfferentiated Dry Erase Close Reading Task Cards for Informational Text~ Students practice close reading on the task cards. Highlight supporting details, wipe off the task card, and then reuse. The blank lines on each card enable students to write their complete answer on the card. This is a great way for students to practice close reading skills in a literacy center.
These 8 reading passages are designed for 3rd grade or 4th grade students to read and determine the main idea. The practice is leveled so that one set of the reading passages has multiple choice answers, and the other set of task cards are free response (students must decide on the main idea independently).
