Practice answering open ended questions while restating the question to write in complete sentences with these 1st grade reading comprehension passages and short answer constructed response questions!

These reading comprehension passages and short answer questions help build stamina for constructed response reading comprehension questions.

I use these passages with my students to practice PQA (put the question in the answer) or TTQA (turn the question around) to practice restating the question.

This is also a great resource for ESL/ELD students. Not only do students have to comprehend the passages, but they also have to use correct syntax in their responses. It's the perfect companion to your current reading comprehension work.

This is also great practice for 3rd graders who need reinforcement in writing in complete sentences and referring back to the text for text evidence.
