Engaging, motivating, and interesting! Use these original non fiction texts to enhance you student's skills with close reading and analytical writing. Each passage features differentiated comprehension questions and a chance for students to write about their reading. A lined page of paper is also included for you to photocpy on the back of each page, if this is where you would like students to respond. Passages are differentiated so you can use them with multiple levels. Great for centers, guided reading, homework, MTSS/RTI, or animal research projects. Get even the most reluctant readers interested!
Each passage is:
*lexile leveled and has a word count
*has different questions at different levels of questioning
*has an opportunity for students to respond to reading by "explaining with examples from the text"
You know your students best! Please check to see if these Lexile levels will work in your classroom!
