Need to improve your students' responses to open-ended questions and improve their reading comprehension? This set of 20 passages and comprehension questions will be sure to help! Every passage has only open-ended questions so that you and your students can practice finding and proving the answer in the text and writing in complete sentences. This is perfect practice for the constructed or formulated response reading comprehension assessments.

Common Core Standards addressed in this set:
This is also a great resource for ESL/ELD students. Not only do students have to comprehend the passages, but they also have to use correct syntax in their responses. It's the perfect companion to your current program.
These are great! Just what I was looking for. The multiple choice passages are usually too easy and don't require the kids to think. If you ever make more of these, I'll be the first in line to get them.

I LOVE these! I will definitely buy more if you make them. What a great way to help kids prepare for the Common Core (MAPS) test. Only wish I had them earlier in the year. This are awesome! Do you have any on a 3rd grade reading level?

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hi Tessa. I purchased your Open- Ended Reading Response 2nd Grade and it looks wonderful but each time I try to download it it stops printing after the fifth page. I have tried printing this at home, at school and my husband's office and I get the same response. Has anyone else had this problem and what should I do ?
Hi, I'm sorry you're having issues. No, no one else has said that they are. Probably the best way to go about it would be to contact TpT because it must be something technical. Sorry I can't be of more help.
I have a question about the 2nd grade open ended question pack. We are in the transition of adopting the CCS. We have adopted the math but I am not as well versed in the Language Arts CCS. I noticed in the first passage it said, "What is the problem?" Does the LA/CCS not use words like conflict, solution? I would like to purchase the packet but try to keep my language consistent. Thank you for answering my questions.
The standards only explicitly say "CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.1 Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text." and "CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2.3 Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges." They don't clearly address problem or solution in 2nd grade. The standards can be found at www.corestandards.org. Different states have unpacked the standards differently and so we don't have clear information about specific words.
