Reading Comprehension Passages with Text-Based Questions: Guided Reading Levels K & L
This reading comprehension packet includes 15 passages designed to help kids work toward the goals of reading and comprehending Guided Reading Levels K and L text.
There are two pages of questions with each story. The first page includes four text-based multiple choice questions. These questions prompt students to find evidence in the text, to consider author's purpose and to differentiate fact from opinion.
The second page is comprised of short answer and extended answer writing prompts. Depending on the length and complexity of the responses, there are either two or three written response questions for each passage.
These passages are perfect for close reading lessons. As students are learning to use evidence to support their thinking, I have them find and highlight the section of text they use to justify their answer. Two options include:
• Color coded highlighting ~ Students highlight the answer to each question in a different color.
• Numbered highlighting ~ Students highlight evidence within the text and then write the question number beside the highlighted evidence.
I also use these passages for choral reading, fluency work, homework, and literacy centers.
The following passages are included in this pack:
The Amazing Elephant Trunk
All About Helicopters
All About Hippos
All About Soil
Lions and Tigers
Birds and Reptiles
States of Matter
Elephant and Monkey
Silly Simon's Revenge
Rabbit's Great Escape
Tug of War
The Dog and His Bone
I have created a free editable listing of the passages and levels. Instead of zipping the files together (as I understand this can sometimes cause technical issues), here's the link to the file:
