Product Description
Want to Encourage Students to Cite Evidence in the Text?

This pack was created to provide resources to meet the CCS with short, engaging nonfiction text. This pack contains six differentiated reading passages. For each reading passage there are:
• Possible teaching points
• Three leveled passages about the same topic, with 4 questions. Students must cite text evidence by underlining answers and color coding the passage.
• Graphic Organizer for Responding to Text
• Interactive Notebook Page for Responding to Text (same as the graphic organizer)

Some passages may have more than one graphic organizer or interactive notebook page.
The following passages are included:
• It All Matters! (Three States of Matter)
• Pushes and Pulls (Force and Motion)
• More than Meets the Eye (Desert Habitat)
• Life Cycle of a Penguin (the Emperor Penguin)
• Icky, Yicky Germs (Germs and Hand Washing)
• Wild Weather (Tornados and Hurricanes)

The passages were written to complement science curriculums in your classroom. Topics were selected at the suggestions of store followers and based on a varied of second grade science standards in several states.

Each passage includes a Lexile Level. Please note that these are approximated levels. The passages can be differentiated by reading level. The passages are leveled as follows:
• It All Matters! (Three States of Matter)- Lexile levels: 350, 430, 500
• Pushes and Pulls (Force and Motion) - Lexile levels: 400, 450, 520
• More than Meets the Eye (Desert Habitat) - Lexile levels: 440, 490, 530
• Life Cycle of a Penguin (the Emperor Penguin) - Lexile levels: 430, 480, 520
• Icky, Yicky Germs (Germs and Hand Washing) - Lexile levels: 410, 480, 530
• Wild Weather (Tornados and Hurricanes) - Lexile levels: 440, 490, 540

All levels are noted in the bottom left of the page. Passages are a half page long and can be cut and pasted into interactive notebooks. Students can cut along the dotted line, splitting the page in half. Then, the students can glue the passage on the left side of the interactive notebook and the questions on to the right side of the interactive notebook. The pages can also be copied and completed on a whole sheet of copier paper, if the classroom does not use interactive notebooks.

For each passage, there is a page of possible teaching points. This page is perfect if the teacher decides to use the passages in small groups. The teaching points include the author’s purpose for writing the text, specific questions about the text to enhance student understanding, and a list of possible vocabulary to target. The vocabulary may be related to how difficult the word is to decode or a multiple meaning of the word. All of the questions and vocabulary on the teaching point’s page are different than the questions on the passage so that the teacher can use the passage questions as an assessment.

Also included are response activities, on two different levels. One of the activities is a lower level activity and the second activity is a higher level activity with less support. The activities are also available as interactive notebook pages.

The following skills are addressed in each passage:
• It All Matters! (Three States of Matter)- Main Idea and Key Details
• Pushes and Pulls (Force and Motion)- Main Idea and Key Details
