What makes these 3rd Grade Reading Fluency Passages so unique?


There are three 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 three 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.

The reading fluency passages and comprehension 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 are included on the same page as well. We also include a link to each leveled passage separately, so you can assign the correct version to each student without any confusion.

Comprehension Questions

Every passage includes a full page of comprehension questions. The first question on every page will help students activate their background knowledge about the passage’s 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.

I wrote the following review for the printable passages: I love these differentiated passages. This saves me so much time now that I don't have to find passages for each tier. I also like that I can use it to work on Fluency. Thank you again for a great product.
