This close reading "One Time, Old Time" download is great for 4th, 5th, or 6th grade students.

I designed this when teaching fourth, fifth, and sixth grade reading to maintain my student's attention and to give the more exposure to close reading. My students love listening to the "voice" of my cowboy grandpa in the many stories he wrote.


  • Five close reading stories
  • Three sets of questions (1st read, 2nd read, 3rd read) for each story
  • Two note-taking pages
  • Answer keys


  • Small or whole group instruction
  • Homeschool families
  • Test prep

Each close reading passage comes with three sets of directions and questions. The first read requires students to answer who, what, where, and when questions. The second read asks students to answer why and how questions. On the third read, the students are asked to respond to a reading response prompt that requires higher-level thinking.

Thank you for your interest! Please ask any questions you may have prior to purchasing.
