HOW TEACHERS CAN USE THIS WEATHER CLOSE READING BUNDLE?

Often struggling readers need extra practice and ways to master content area concepts. I use these to practice notetaking and text marking as well as questioning skills.  There are 18 pages total in the bundle, and each of the three sets will be used over 3-5 days. The set would work well with a weather science unit or for small group reading to reinforce the concepts (which is how I will be using them). The articles are written at a 700-750 lexile level…fourth to fifth grade level.

Concepts include the following terms and topics:

  • Meteorology Tools-barometer, thermometer, anemometer, weather vane, hygrometer
  • Warm and Cold Fronts
  • Cloud types-Cumulus, Stratus, Nimbus, etc.
  • Storm types
