Build comprehension using these 4 high-interest, nonfiction reading passages that feature one page of informational text and one page of multiple-choice comprehension questions. Topics include the Kraken/giant squids, spiders, vampire bats/Dracula, and the process of making a mummy. The questions include a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests, but with only 3 answer choices. Great for October reading!
The thumbnails and preview show the text and question format. Download the preview as a reading freebie! The measured reading levels range from 3rd-5th and are "fairly easy to read" or "average" according to the readability indicators. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.
Here is what you get with this resource:
• Release the Kraken informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Spooky Spiders informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Vampire Varieties informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Wrap Stars informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Answer Key (1 page)
• TOU & Credits (1 page)
All of the texts have reading levels in the 5th grade range. I would recommend that 3rd and most 4th grade teachers plan on doing these orally with students while modeling good reading strategies. Most 5th and 6th graders who are already familiar with this type of testing format should be able to complete these independently.
These passages have fun titles! As an added critical thinking BONUS, have students explain why they think the title of each reading passage was chosen.
I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.
