This resource contains 4 informational passages written on a 4th/5th grade reading level. One passage is meant to be used for an entire week with a different assignment a day with the same passage. The students will have to revisit the passage each day to complete the daily assignment. This will support a deeper understanding of the text and provide the student with practice with close reading of a text.
I have included three options for the daily assignments for you to choose from to use based on your students' needs. I have also included a blank directions page if you want to write in your own directions for the daily assignments. Print the directions you want to use and the passage and questions for the week. Give the students the handout to record their homework on or a blank piece of notebook paper. A journal or notebook could also be used. On each option, Monday through Wednesday are general open ended responses to the text and Thursday is a set of comprehension questions specific to each story.
An answer key with suggested answers and specific common core alignment is provided for each passage.
