Description

This Second Grade Reading Comprehension packet is designed to help students who are reading at Guided Reading Levels K and L (DRA Levels 20 - 24) develop strong reading comprehension skills.

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) Ready for use with the new TpT Digital Tool

3) Printable, as a traditional PDF in full color

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

Fifteen passages are included. There are two pages of questions with each story. The first page is a worksheet that includes four text-based multiple choice questions. These questions prompt students to find evidence in the text, to consider author's purpose and to differentiate fact from opinion.

The second page is comprised of short answer and extended answer writing prompts. Depending on the length and complexity of the responses, there are either two or three written response questions for each passage.

These passages are perfect for close reading lessons. 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. Two options include:

★ Color coded highlighting - Students highlight the answer to each question in a different color.

★ Numbered highlighting - Students highlight evidence within the text and then write the question number beside the highlighted evidence.

I also use these passages for choral reading, fluency work, homework, and literacy centers.

The following passages are included in this pack:

Redwood Trees

The Amazing Elephant Trunk

All About Helicopters

All About Hippos

All About Soil

Lions and Tigers

Birds and Reptiles

States of Matter

Elephant and Monkey

Silly Simon

Silly Simon's Revenge

Rabbit's Great Escape

The Mirror

Tug of War

The Dog and His Bone

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.
