This product is designed to help kids who are reading at Guided Reading Level D become skilled at reading simple passages and answering text-based comprehension questions.
As students find the evidence that supports their answers, they participate in their very first close reading lessons.
This pack is ideal for morning work once students are familiar with the format.
Eighteen reading comprehension passages are included. With each passage, there are four multiple choice questions and one page of written response activities. The written response pages include labeling and fill in the blank activities.
The following passages are included:
3 D Shapes
What Pet Did She Get?
What Pet Did He Get?
This Little Turtle
What Can Go Up?
Hey Diddle Diddle
Itsy Bitsy Spider
I Went to the Woods
Polly Got Out!
A bonus passage, Our (American) Flag, is also included.
Supports the following Kindergarten and First Grade standards:
- Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
-With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
If multiple choice questions are new to your students, I recommend putting simple questions in a multiple choice format during calendar time or other daily routines. I like to give each student a strip of cardstock with A, B and C written on it and have them practice answering multiple choice questions by clipping a clothespin on the correct answer. This is an easy, fun way for kids to develop confidence answering multiple choice questions.
Once kids are comfortable with the multiple choice format, I like to discuss the first few passages with groups and demonstrate how to answer the simple text-based multiple choice questions. With guided practice, kids quickly develop the skills they need to be successful reading these passages and independently answering the text-dependent questions.
These passages are based on common sight words. I also have kids find and highlight selected sight words.
Supports the following standards:
- Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words (for beginning of year words).
- Read common high-frequency words by sight.
Many thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)
