PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set contains 4 high-interest reading passages (3 non-fiction and 1 fiction). They are loosely aligned with the Virginia Studies curriculum (VS.4: life in the Virginia colony), but do not necessarily explicitly reinforce concepts from those standards. Each passage includes four questions related to various reading skills; each passage also includes vocabulary work. The passages are written approximately at a fourth grade level.

Note: This resource is different from my Virginia Studies and Reading SOL-aligned informational text series. Those are available here.

Skills covered in this set include:
SOL 4.4a: use context to clarify word meanings
SOL 4.4b: use knowledge of roots, affixes, synonyms, antonyms, and homophones
SOL 4.4c: use word-reference materials
SOL 4.4e: use vocabulary from other content areas
SOL 4.5e: identify the problem and solution
SOL 4.5h: draw conclusions/make inferences
SOL 4.5j: identify cause and effect relationships
SOL 4.6a: use text structures, such as type, headings, and graphics, to predict and categorize
information
SOL 4.6b: formulate questions that might be answered in the selection
SOL 4.6d: identify the main idea
SOL 4.6e: summarize supporting details
SOL 4.6f: draw conclusions and make simple inferences
SOL 4.6i: use prior knowledge and build additional background knowledge as context for new
learning
SOL 4.6k: 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.

Thank you for visiting my store!
