FIFTY original 4th grade leveled reading passages and close reading activities perfectly aligned to Common Core! Standards RI.4.1-RI.4.8 each have FIVE passages and activities specifically dedicated to that standard. Standard RI.4.9 is extra special (you know, the one where you compare two texts on the same topic) because it has a total of TEN passages so that your students can compare away!
RIGOROUS AND COMMON CORE ALIGNED
Each passage has TWO pages of carefully written and consistent close reading tasks and text dependent questions. The first page of tasks are specifically aligned to the standard identified at the top of the page. The second page of activities is a spiral of all the 4th Grade RI standards. This is perfect for holding those kids accountable for everything they have already learned! No skill slipping on your watch!
WHAT CAN THIS BE USED FOR?
This is perfect for class wide close reading, assessments, guided reading groups, or homework. Your students must refer to the text and provide textual evidence of their understanding.
CAREFULLY CRAFTED READING PASSAGES
Each passage falls within the Lexile level of 770-980, which is the Common Core Standards expectation for 4th grade. The Lexile level is marked at the top of each passage. The topics range between STEM topics, science, history, and opinion pieces. There are multiple diagrams, illustrations, and photos throughout.
