Getting ready for standardized tests? Use this set of five texts to help students learn how to navigate multiple choice, summarizing, and open-ended questions. In this file, you'll receive:
-Five original informational texts
-Five multiple choice questions for each text
-One summarizing question for each text (three scaffolded summaries, two summary tasks)
-One open-ended question for each text
These texts represent multiple text structures and topics. Formatting is simple and streamlined. A PowerPoint presentation is included with the multiple choice questions and answers.
Answers and discussion notes are included for each question. The texts are formatted to allow you to assign one or two questions each day, making for meaningful practice that doesn't take the entire language arts block. Alternatively, you could use these as a center, for guided reading, or for tutoring.
A note on levels: This product was originally called Daily Warm-Ups, Grade 3. However, I've started using multiple readability scales instead of relying on one system. Depending on the scale, these texts come out at levels 3-5. I've included average readability scales in this revised set.
Preview includes an entire text and question set for you to try.
