Build your students’ comprehension skills with these simple stories and questions. Just print and use!
This set of 20 passages with a pet theme are at a beginning first grade reading level. (Approximately DRA levels 4-8)
The passages can be used with your whole group, in guided groups, or as part of your RTI interventions. For more independent students, these could be used as part of a literacy learning station or center as well.
Included are 20 short passages with 2 questions each to use in your instruction to help students learn to look back in the text to support their answers.
There are 5 passages about each pet: Max the Cat, Peanut the Puppy, Swimmy the Fish, and Molly the Mouse.
Encourage students to use highlighters or their pencils to mark where they find their answers in the passages
Passages can be projected or copied as transparencies to model with students how to find and mark the “proof” in the text.
