2nd Grade compare and contrast informational texts!
This pack includes ten 2nd grade level reading passages and ten simplified texts for students reading below grade level that are perfect for comparing and contrasting on standard RI.2.9. The grade level passages fall within the Lexile level range of 450-790, which is the Common Core State Standards expectation for 2nd grade. The simplified and shortened passages are all written at a Lexile level between 390-540. The Lexile level is marked at the top of each passage. This makes it easy to differentiate for your readers!
RIGOROUS AND COMMON CORE ALIGNED
Each pair of passages has three pages of carefully written and consistent close reading tasks and text dependent questions. The first page of tasks are specifically aligned to the standard of comparing and contrasting two informational texts on the same topic. The 2nd and 3rd pages of activities are a spiral of all the 2nd Grade RI standards. This is perfect for holding those kids accountable for everything they have already learned! No skill slipping on your watch!
WHAT CAN THIS BE USED FOR?
This is perfect for class-wide close reading, assessments, guided reading groups, or homework. Your students must refer to the text and provide textual evidence of their understanding.
