This reading comprehension and text evidence FREE sample is from the Guided Reading Text Evidence All Year Bundle, which you can read about at TEXT EVIDENCE FOR LITTLE READERS.

This reading comprehension bundle is for helping your little readers look back in the text as they read. This is a free sample of the bundle, which includes 11 sample readers, giving you an entire year worth of readers in the bundle!

These readers are randomly taken from the various monthly reader packs. Each monthly reader pack within the bundle includes non-fiction readers as well as fiction. They event include vocabulary focus words to increase student vocabulary as they read.

Focus on reading one story to mastery for a whole week or read a story a day. I placed mine in guided reading folders, and we did them in small group with my specific reading group. Do one task at a time such as color coding all the answers in the text and then go back and write the answers to the questions. Then review and talk about what the vocabulary words mean.

NOTE: These are for progressing readers and may not work for beginning readers. They work best for higher first graders and 2nd grade readers. For beginning readers, check out the Phonics Text Evidence Readers All Year.

That bundle includes nonfiction and fiction passages infused with first grade vocabulary focus, inferential, and explicit textual evidence questions for the entire year. Students color code the answers in the text. Made specifically for first grade but can be used for low second graders.

The passages are short so students can focus on textual evidence and comprehension. Every month is included in this set. As well as a special Black History Month set for during Black History Month. You get a discount by purchasing the bundle.
