Iris Becker Elementary

Fourth Grade Close and Critical Reading Strategies Enhanced!

Every classroom at Becker works on enhancing our close and critical reading strategies. Our fourth graders showcased exactly how to do it in these few steps:

  1. First read: students read and annotate
  2. Students talk with a partner on their reading
  3. Second read: teacher reads, students listen
  4. Think, write, talk
  5. Third read: students reread to find answers and evidence

These are easy steps you can try at home!
