Product Description

This guided reading comprehension packet includes 15 passages designed to help kids work toward the goals of reading, comprehending and thoughtfully responding to Guided Reading Levels S and T text.

There are two pages of questions with each story. The first page includes five text-based multiple choice questions. The second page is comprised of two written response questions.

As students are learning to use evidence to support their thinking, I have them find and highlight the section of text they use to justify their answer.

These passages focus primarily on athletes who have overcome great odds to experience success and then generously given back to the communities from which they came.

The following athletes are included in this pack:

★ Tanni-Grey Thompson - Paralympic athlete who now advocates for better handicap assessibility

★ Michael Oher - Football star from The Blind Side

★ Lauren Edwards - Female football player

★ Kristi Yamaguchi - Figure skating champion and philanthropist

★ Milla Bizzotto - Nine year old extreme athlete who overcame bullying

★ Miracle in Miami - Example of the importance of never giving up

★ Maggie Rodgers - Lifeguard who learned the importance of the job

★ Anthony Robles - One legged wrestler who was accused of having an unfair advantage

★ The Cheer Extreme Cougars - Cheer leading event that exemplifies sportmanship

★ Bethany Hamilton - Surfer who lost arm in shark attack but still reigns victorious

★ Coach Brooks - Hockey coach who focused on finding players who would work together well

★ Caron Butler - Basketball star who strives to inspire struggling youth

★ Ray Lewis - Football star with the goal of being remembered for his positive impact on youth

★ Coach Carter - The story of a tough love coach and the success of his student athletes

★ Nadia Comăneci - Gymnast who reminds us to take life's challenges head-on

These passages are perfect for use in close reading lessons, as assessments, as morning work, for fluency work or for homework.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.

Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT Literacy)

Please note: An answer key is included for the multiple choice questions. For many of the written response questions, answers can vary and are considered correct as long as the student logically uses evidence from the text to support his or her answer.
