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!

These passages are written for the months of August and September, but can really be used anytime. The fiction passages are themed around school, while the nonfiction are written based on the historical events/science content taught in grades 3,4,5.

5 Fiction passages are included:

- The Chicken Nugget Bet

- The New Day

-The Underdogs

-The Reading Assignment

-Jacob's Problem

10 Non Fiction Passages are included:

- Johnny Appleseed

- 9/11

- The Water Cycle

- The Boston Tea Party

-Famous Museums

- The North and South Prior to the Civil War

- Skyscrapers

-Burning of Washing, D.C.

-TV Dinners (This is an offbeat holiday celebrated on 9/10)

- The Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

Happy Teaching!
