This resource is a set of 12 close reading passages and 12 leveled readers on science topics related to habitats and ecosystems for second grade students. Four different topics are included in both article format and book/reader format. Each one is included in 3 reading levels giving you 12 passages + 12 readers for a total of 24 reading choices. This resource is the perfect companion to Habitats & Ecosystems 2nd Grade Science unit.

The reading levels range from beginning of year 2nd grade to end of year 2nd grade and correlate to Lexile levels 400-500L, 500-600L, and 600-700L. These carefully written resources are ready-to-use comprehension and close reading practice for your students. They are an ideal way to practice reading skills and reinforce science content.

Easy to differentiate, each leveled passage and reader includes 2 sets of questions. Text dependent questions for students to locate and color code evidence in the text and text structure questions that target 9 key learning standards for reading informational text:

Ask and answer questions

Read and comprehend

Main topic

Text features

Images & diagrams

Text purpose

Word meanings

Context clues

Cause & effect

The questions are identical for each reading level allowing you to use a specific passage whole group and discuss the questions all together, even if some students are using a different level. The passages and readers are ideal to use in guided reading groups and as interventions materials.

To save you planning time I’ve included procedures for using the passages, reading level conversions chart, teacher’s notes, and Common Core standards alignment page for 2nd grade reading informational text.

Please see the preview for more details and pictures of all that is included in the download.

Happy teaching!
