These are nonfiction reading passages about Ancient China. There is a first grade level passage, second grade level passage and a third/fourth grade level passage.
There is also a vocabulary support page for those who just need a little extra practice with the vocabulary or may struggle with some of the words.
I've also included fluency trackers to record words per minute read each week. There are various levels and also a blank one in case a child reads above or below the rates given.
This can be used as homework. Directions are at the top of each page. The first night students read the passage and circle words they aren't familiar with. The second night they reread the passage and answer the 5 comprehension questions. The third night they have someone time them for 1 minute and write at the bottom how many words per minute they can read.
These are designed so that all students can be reading about the topic at hand on their level. Vocabulary they will need to know for each science and social studies unit these correlate to are incorporated into the passage.
To save money check out the new social studies passages bundle!
I also have a science passages bundle. Math passages will be on their way, too!
