Showing evidence is such an important skill for kids to use! These passages are designed to get kids to look back and find the answer in the text. Each passage comes with 5 questions-no prep need! Just print, copy, and give!!

This resource can be used in a number of different ways. You can simply make copies and use in the classroom or you can create what I call “Comp Files” and use as a homework resource. Simply attach the included reading log to one side of a file folder and then include a passage. Students take the comp file home each night and the parents sign off on it…the perfect way for getting in those parent contacts!

My evidence bookmarks are also included in this unit! These bookmarks feature evidence prompts such as “According to the text”, “Based on what I read”, and more!

April's April Fools Prank

See what others are saying about my Comp Files series!

"LOVE!!!!!! My kids struggle with Evidence Prompts even though we have been doing them forever. Love that these are simple enough to stay on topic and have clear answers. Wish I had purchased the bundle to begin with. This is my 2nd or 3rd set."

"I purchased the February Comp files and my students and I love them!! Great sentence starters for referring to text and the fiction and non fiction titles are engaging. I use it in small group with different colored highlighters!"

"I love this! I am using it with my small group rotations and have integrated close reading techniques. It's working really well and the kids are feeling less and less anxiety about nonfiction and text based answers! A lot more confident students!"

"This is my favorite TPT addition to my classroom this year! Love it!!"

"My students love the information and also using a highlighter to find the answer in the text before answering questions. It has been an easy thing to do in a small group with 15-20 minutes."

"I love and will continue to purchase your comp files because they are great products! I've used them for homework, morning work, or during literacy stations. My students look forward to them and are now text based evidence superstars! Thanks for yet another fabulous set! :)"

"This is such a wonderful resource and worked for my differentiated homework that I use for my students. It's perfect for pushing my children to go back into the text and writing detailed responses, I have seen such growth already with some of students and their written responses!"

"I'm such a fan of these packs! I use them for homework and they are perfect! The kids love the variety of texts and I love how your questioning hits a variety of reading standards!"

"Been doing these all year and have seen a huge difference in how my students use evidence to support their answers."
