These Level Pre-A Fiction Guided Reading passages, with comprehension questions, are a great resource to use in your guided reading groups to help your students focus on reading at their instructional level. Students will practice reading passages at their instructional level and complete comprehension questions to show their understanding of the texts. The lesson plans, leveled reading passages, and comprehension questions are perfect for 15-20 minute small guided reading group lessons.

Students will have the opportunity to successfully read at their instructional level and show their comprehension of each passage through the completion of the simple reading response questions.

These leveled fiction reading passages include lesson plans, running records, and comprehension questions with answer keys.

What's included ?

  • 15 guided reading fiction passages for Level Pre-A

These passages are aligned with F&P leveling system.

Each guided reading passage includes:

  • written comprehension questions
  • answer key
  • lesson plan
  • running record

Also included:

  • student guided reading folder cover
  • two formats of each passage: a one page format with everything on one page, and a two page format which includes more spacing between the lines and larger font size, and comprehension questions on a separate page.

How is this bundle used?

  1. You will use the lesson plan to guide your instruction. A Before Reading, During Reading, and After Reading section is included.
  2. Students will complete word work activities first. This prepares them for words that will be seen within their text.
  3. Students will then read the text. You will guide students with strategy suggestions, when needed.
  4. Students will complete the written comprehension questions, to show their understanding of the fiction text. You will discuss the leveled reading passage, as a group.
  5. As a follow up, students will sit with you one-on-one for a running record. You will keep students on a rotation, so that you have a running record score for all of them every few weeks. This is your informal formative assessment that allows you to determine if students are in the right reading group, or ready to move on.

With all the parts included in this pack, it is a complete guided reading program for you to use with your readers! These guided reading passages work great in small groups. Everything you need is provided, so you can simply focus on helping each reader make progress!
