Easily target non-fiction comprehension with these printables! They are perfect for teaching and practicing several language-based reading comprehension strategies including previewing the text for important information prior to reading, answering comprehension questions, identifying the main idea (in a scaffolded, supported way!), and summarizing/paraphrasing the information. In addition, each page includes 4 key vocabulary words from the text so you can practice this skill as well!
This packet includes:
- 32 No-Prep Pages (see preview pictures for examples)
- 3 Graphic Organizers
- Clear directions for how I use it in my own therapy!
All covering the following targets:
- Finding the Main Idea
- Context clues for vocabulary words
- WH- Questions
- Reading Strategies
All of the worksheets include editable text boxes so that you can type directly on the worksheet on a computer.
The graphic organizers target vocabulary (identifying synonyms/antonyms, drawing a picture, using in a sentence) and prefixes/suffixes as several of the targeted vocabulary words include them.
The entire packet is black and white for easy printing! And, it now includes a Google Slides™️ version so that you can more easily add texts boxes and more!

♥ ”LOVE this resource! You know everything from Speechy Musings will be comprehensive, thoughtful and engaging, but this resource is even better than expected. Love the different reading strategies and how they're each highlighted in the different readings. Highly recommend!” - Rachel C.
♥ ”I just bought this resource two days ago, but have already used it with so many of my middle and high schoolers! The middle schoolers mostly all have specific learning disabilities, and the higher schoolers are students with moderate needs. This is a great no-prep resource for basic reading comprehension, vocabulary acquisition, expressive language (summarizing, grammar), etc. Love it!” - Chandler G.
