Differentiated Summer Reading Passages -- These 11 differentiated stories (8 fiction, 3 nonfiction, 3 levels for each story, 33 in all) and comprehension questions will provide your students with an engaging learning experience. This Common Core aligned product will allow you to differentiate and meet the needs of the readers in your classroom.
These original stories are a great way for your students to work on understanding the text, rather than just following along with it. Your students will practice many skills by reading and responding to the questions, such as, drawing conclusions, plot, main idea, vocabulary, context clues, key details, inferring, characters, and sequencing.
Included in this pack are two different options of comprehension questions. The first option includes 5 multiple choice questions. The second option has two pages of questions that require students to write out their answers, highlight the answer in the story, and use a bit of coloring as well to show understanding of the reading. Both formats are perfect for homework, test prep, assessment, small group, interventions, enrichment, or extra reading practice. Having 3 levels of the stories and 2 question formats gives you options when using these stories with your students.

(These summer passages are intended for the end of 1st/2nd, not as a back to school set. My fall set, however, is for the start of the school year. Thank you!)
