Character Perspective – 2nd & 3rd Florida B.E.S.T. ELA.2.R.1.3/ELA.3.R.1.3

⭐️These Lexile® leveled close reading stories are perfect for teaching students how to acknowledge differences in the points of view of characters, including by speaking in a different voice for each character when reading dialogue aloud. This packet is designed to specifically fit 2nd & 3rd grade Florida B.E.S.T standard ELA.2.R.1.3 & 3.R.1.3 but can be used by anyone teaching character perspective.


⭐️Includes Lexile leveled passages, standard based questions, anchor charts, and hands-on cut-and-paste visuals to help students master this skill. Certified Lexile measured close reading comprehension texts are varied within the second and third grade band.


⭐️If you do not use Florida Best, a similar bundle is available for second and third grade Common Core. Both packets contain most of the same passages, so do not purchase both.
