These Guided Reading Leveled Passages and Questions help students become text detectives!

Ideal for use as a beginning of the year second grade review packet.

To provide flexibility, for use in distance learning and/or a classroom setting, the following options are offered:

1) A link to this document in Google Slides

2) A link to a document with a JPEG image of each page

3) Ready for use with Easel by TpT™ (the new TpT Digital Tool)

4) Printable, as a traditional PDF in full color

5) Printable, as a traditional PDF in an ink-saving black and white version

As students work through this packet, which includes 15 reading passages, they become confident reading Levels G and H (DRA Levels 12 - 14) text and answering text-based questions.

Four multiple choice questions and three short answer questions are included with each passage.

As students are learning to use evidence to support their thinking, I have them find and highlight the section of text they use to justify their answer.

I often have students go on scavenger hunts to find and highlight words with long vowels, words with specific endings, words from our word wall, etc.

These passages and worksheets are useful for guided reading, close reading, choral reading, fluency work, distance learning, and/or literacy centers.

The Following Passages Are Included:

★ The Bald Eagle

★ Otters

★ Skunks

★ Trees

★ King Penguins

★ The Polar Bear

★ Measuring with Paper Clips

★ Time for School

★ The Red Flower

★ The Orca

★ Sue's Painting

★ The Little Red Hen

★ The Water Cycle

★ The Zebra and the Ostrich

★ The Colors of the Sky

A cover for use in home learning packs is also included.

* Please note: An answer key is included for the multiple choice questions. For many of the written response questions, answers can vary and are considered correct as long as the student logically uses evidence from the text to support his or her answer.
