What makes these 1st Grade Reading Passages so unique?

Differentiated Google Slides Made Easy

The passages and questions are on the same page… no scrolling back and forth to answer questions. Movable clip art pieces for marking the answers and highlighting text is included on the same page as well. We also include a link to each leveled passages separately, so you can assign the correct version to each student without any confusion.

There are  3 differentiated versions of each passage for a total of 96 passage options! These passages have been carefully leveled and the levels are subtly marked with a small icon in the corner. All 3 levels of passages will use the same reading comprehension question page, making differentiation simple! No child will feel left out since the mark is only a small symbol.

Comprehension Questions

Every passage includes comprehension questions. The first question on every page will help students activate their background knowledge about the passage topic. This question is followed by comprehension questions from the text (multiple choice and free response). Last, there is a deeper thinking question to encourage critical thinking and hit a variety of grade level language arts standards.

Reading Fluency for First Grade

This resource makes recording data simple for you. There are several options included for tracking reading fluency! Up to 3 reads of each passage can be recorded directly on the passage page. A teacher recording sheet and a student graph are also included. Directions are included, so you will know exactly what to do!
