UPDATED 6/6/18: Now includes the updated "more room" edition!
Showing evidence is such an important skill for kids to use! These passages are designed to get kids to look back and find the answer in the text. Each passage comes with 5 questions-no prep need! Just print, copy, and give!!
This resource can be used in a number of different ways. You can simply make copies and use in the classroom or you can create what I call “Comp Files” and use as a homework resource. Simply attach the included reading log to one side of a file folder and then include a passage. Students take the comp file home each night and the parents sign off on it…the perfect way for getting in those parent contacts!
My evidence bookmarks are also included in this unit! These bookmarks feature evidence prompts such as “According to the text”, “Based on what I read”, and more!
These passages are written for the month of October but can really be used anytime. The fiction passages are themed around Halloween, while the nonfiction are written based on the historical events/science content taught in grades 3,4,5 and/or fun, offbeat Holidays "celebrated" in October
