What makes these Kindergarten-6th Grade Reading Passages so unique?
The passages have been carefully leveled, and the levels are subtly marked with a small icon in the corner. No child will feel left out since the mark is only a small symbol. Because the three levels of passages will use the same reading comprehension question page, you can assign each child the page that is most appropriate for their level while still discussing the same topics and questions with the full class. Differentiation made simple! Alternatively, you can always assign the full class the same level.
Note: while questions will vary from grade to grade, the topic remainS consistent from K-6th grade. This is helpful for homeschool teachers, mixed-grade classrooms, or schools that want to cover similar topics across grade levels.
Yes, the differentiation provides versatility, but more options are included, as well. Print and digital options are in this bundle (and it’s so handy to have both during these academic times when many schools are shifting here and there to accommodate for COVID). You’ll also find versatility in the passages themselves.
Every passage in the 1st through 6th grade line includes a full page of comprehension questions. The first question on every page will help students activate their background knowledge about the passage topic. This skill helps students make connections and retain what they are learning. This question is followed by comprehension questions from the text (multiple choice and free response). These questions invite students to cite textual evidence for their answers using colored writing utensils (printable version) or movable clipart pieces (digital version), a skill that increases readers’ confidence. Last, there is a deeper thinking question on each question page to encourage critical thinking and hit a variety of grade-level language arts standards.
Kindergarten passages include three comprehension questions per passage. Instead of the questions focusing solely on the “what,” Special attention has been given to include other types of questions (example: who, when, where, why, how). This prepares children for longer paragraph-driven text they will approach in 1st grade. Like the upper grades passages, these questions also invite students to cite textual evidence for their answers using colored writing utensils (printable version) or movable clipart pieces (digital version). Additionally, free-response and multiple-choice options are given for each topic. This gives you versatility. Assign the multiple-choice option, if you’re crunched for time, assign free-response to focus on handwriting, etc.
