Product Description
This set contains 4 high-interest non-fiction reading passages. They are loosely aligned with the Virginia Studies curriculum (VS.2a-c: geography of Virginia), but do not necessarily explicitly reinforce concepts from those standards. Each passage includes 3-4 questions related to one non-fiction reading skill; some passages also include vocabulary work. The passages are written at approximately a DRA 40 level.

Note: This resource is different from my Virginia Studies and Reading SOL-aligned informational text series. Those are available here.

Skills covered in this set include:
SOL 4.4a: use context clues to clarify word meanings
SOL 4.4b: use knowledge of roots, affixes, synonyms, antonyms, and homophones
SOL 4.4c: use word-reference materials
SOL 4.4e: use vocabulary from other content areas
SOL 4.6a: use text structures to predict and categorize information
SOL 4.6c: explain the author’s purpose
SOL 4.6i: use prior knowledge and build additional background knowledge
SOL 4.6j: identify new information learned
SOL 4.6k: use reading strategies to monitor comprehension

I suggest assigning these passages weekly for homework, but feel free to use them however you like (i.e., morning work, guided reading group practice, etc.)! I know that everyone teaches various reading skills at different times in the year, so I've tried to keep the skills in this set appropriate for the early time in the year that most teachers are probably teaching the geography unit.

Some of the questions are subjective; answer keys are provided where applicable.

Thank you for visiting my store!
