Product Description

⭐️Teachers and students love these 12 Lexile® certified close reading stories from different genres for 5th grade. Paired passages and questions are perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing compare and contrast skills for RL5.9. Fifth grade students learn to compare and contrast stories in the same genre for their approaches to themes and topics.

Genres include: action/ adventure, fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, science fiction, and realistic fiction.

⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this packet is still perfect for teaching or reinforcing these skills.

⭐️Includes standard based questions, anchor charts, and two skills focused test passages. Certified Lexile measured close reading comprehension texts are varied within the fourth and fifth grade bands and aligned to Common Core standards.

⭐️This paperless resource is compatible with Google Drive and Google Slides. I also have the printable version available here: Compare & Contrast Stories in the Same Genre - 5th Grade RL.5.9

*This digital version saves paper, but still requires teachers to correct student responses.


✏️Lexile Levels - All 12 stories include a certified Lexile measure to make differentiation easy. Passages vary across the 4th grade Common Core Text Complexity Band (the range for fourth and fifth grade is 740L-1010L).

✏️Integrated Color Coding - Color coding strategy encourages students to learn how to find and use text evidence in their answers.

✏️Comprehensive - Passages are perfect for comprehensive standard based test prep. Included anchor charts and questions make this resource great for lesson modeling. Works perfectly for small groups and guided reading.

✏️Scaffolding - Utilizes the Lexile Framework® for Reading and a mix of standard based essay and multiple choice questions to allow educators to scaffold independent work and homework. Also great for centers and interventions.

✏️Highly Engaging - Contains original passages with high-quality photographs designed to engage students of all levels and interests.
