This can be used for homework, morning work, or classwork and would be perfect to use during a Informational Unit or after the unit for reinforcement.
This resource contains 4 informational pages of 4 paragraphs each. Each page contains 4 paragraphs on different topics and with different main ideas. The paragraphs are written on a 3rd grade reading level. One page of paragraphs is meant to be used for an entire week with a different assignment each day with the same page. The students will have to revisit the paragraphs each day to complete the daily assignment. This will support a deeper understanding of the text and provide the student with practice with close reading of a text. I have included three options for the daily assignments (on pages 5-7) for you to choose from to use based on your students' needs. I have also included a blank directions page if you want to write in your own directions for the daily assignments (page 8). Print the directions you want to use and the passage and questions for the week. Give the students the handout (page 10) to record their homework on or a blank piece of notebook paper. A journal or notebook could also be used.
For each option, Monday through Wednesday are general open ended responses to the text and Thursday is a set of multiple choice questions specific to each story that require the students to choose either the main idea or the best heading for each paragraph.. An answer key with suggested answers is provided for the Thursday Comprehension questions.
