This packet was designed to very closely mimic actual testing materials, so that your students can become comfortable with what the tests look like and how questions are phrased.
This packet contains 5 authentic fiction pieces (labeled with their Lexile Levels). Each piece is accompanied by 2 short response questions and 1 extended response question.
The text is laid out to closely mimic the actual ELA tests, with numbered lines and page breaks. Each page is also numbered for easy reference.
The extended response questions all include a blank planning page with directions modeled directly after the directions your student will see on test day.
This is a perfect resource for teaching students how to respond to short and extended response questions, and can be assigned as classwork or homework.
