  • StandardsNEW

Your first grade and second grade students explore text for facts and opinions. They learn to examine the text more carefully for soft c and soft g words after multiple fluent readings. Perfect for small group guided reading time, as there are 3 differentiated leveled passages.

Decodable reader in 2 formats helps students needing more fluency practice before moving on to the close reading activities. Read the enlarged pages together as a group, and then give individual students the one-page foldable booklet to reread at home.

Reading comprehension is achieved with students answering text-dependent questions and drawing illustrated details from the passages. Supportive printables included that help you introduce the meaning of fact and opinion and sorted grade-level phonics words. Practice isolated phonics with the spin-and-read game for soft c and soft g words.

Do your students read at any of these grade levels?

Level 1 (L1) = beginning to middle of 1st grade

Level 2 (L2) = middle to end of 1st grade

Level 3 (L3) = 2nd-3rd grade at minimum

If your students reading levels range between first and third grade, this resource may be a good fit for you!

Downloadable printables that are included:

  • Poster (8.5x11 in.) Fact and Opinion
  • Poster (8.5x11 in.) soft c and soft g word sort
  • Large decodable reader (L1) for whole group
  • 1-page foldable decodable reader (L1) for student use
  • Fluency spinner game worksheet
  • 3 leveled passages with phonics and close reading comprehension questions
  • Answer keys for all 3 leveled passages

This resource supports Common-core aligned rigor for first and second graders in this resource, yet includes scaffolding needed for lower-leveled readers.
