I really like these, but the print is small (especially for trying to highlight) and my kids have trouble getting their answers in the small spaces provided. I'm all about saving paper, but would be nice if passages were full page and questions separate with more writing space.

This looks like a great resource and I can't wait to start using it in the classroom. The only thing that I think would help is if there were links in the table of contents to take you straight to the passage or if there was a table of contents in the beginnings that had links to the seasons. It would make it easier to navigate. Thanks for all your hard work!

Do you have just the summer unit available? I can't find it in your store.

Jaime,

It's listed as Late Spring/Summer :)
On  March 13, 2014lojuana donald (TpT Seller) asked:
Before I purchase this product, I would like to know if they have been leveled according to the Lexile? In other words, have they been analyzed according to Lexile? If not, will I be able to put them through the analyzer without typing the passages? My principal wants to know the complexity of the material I am using this year.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 20, 2014Across the Hall in 2nd Grade answered:
Hello!

I do not provide the Lexile level on the passages. From what I understand they can be analyzed, but I haven't tried it myself to say for sure either way. I hope that helps!

On  September 7, 2013,  Beverly T. asked:
My question to you is what reading series do you use? And are your second graders doing a lot of the applying the skill to the text with these passages that you created? And do they contain a lot of the higher order thinking level questions?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 8, 2013Across the Hall in 2nd Grade answered:
BTyre,

I hope I am able to answer your questions. If you have any more questions you can always email me at {acrossthehallin2nd@gmail.com}

*These reading passages are not aligned or related to any reading series in any way. They are original seasonal stories written by me.
*I created these passages for my students to go back into the text for their answers. We do a lot of practice with this in our classroom before I have them complete them independently.
*I believe they address many HOT skills but I encourage you to download the preview to get a closer look. Besides the preview for the Bundled version, all "editions" have their own previews as well. Also, most of the editions come with a free passage in the preview, so you are welcome to download the previews and use the freebies to see if they work for your class.

On  September 7, 2013,  Buyer asked:
how does this book include nonfiction passages?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 7, 2013Across the Hall in 2nd Grade answered:
Hi teacherpapa,

To answer your question, the bundled reading passages are not a book. The product is made up of several reading passages, some of which are non fiction. The general ratio per set is 9 fiction to 3 non fiction.

I hope that answers your question!

In the first day story, it says he has a younger sister, Sydney. Later it says she is in fourth grade. Is this a mistake, or am I in my exhausted state reading it wrong? I'm still in love with this resource.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 29, 2013Across the Hall in 2nd Grade answered:
No, you are right! I am in the process of updating the story and reloading the product. It should be up by tomorrow at some point! Thanks for letting me know!

The beginning of the year is so exhausting! Sending energy vibes your way!
