Product Description
If your students are like mine, they love reading about colonial history! This set of high-interest reading passages is a great way to reinforce social studies content while reviewing essential reading skills and strategies!

4 passages are included (3 non-fiction and 1 fiction). Each passage includes 4 questions related to various reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. The passages are written approximately at a fourth grade level.

Skills covered in this set include:
• use context clues to clarify word meanings
• use knowledge of roots, affixes, synonyms, antonyms, and homophones
• use word-reference materials
• use vocabulary from other content areas
• identify the problem and solution
• draw conclusions/make inferences
• identify cause and effect relationships
• use text features (type, headings, and graphics) to predict and categorize information
• formulate questions that might be answered in the selection
• identify the main idea
• summarize supporting details
• use prior knowledge and build additional background knowledge as context for new learning
• use reading strategies throughout the reading process to monitor comprehension

I suggest assigning these passages weekly for homework, but feel free to use them however you like (i.e., morning work, guided reading group practice, etc.)!

Some of the questions are subjective; answer keys are provided where applicable.

Aligned with Virginia Reading SOL 4.4, 4.5, and 4.6.
