⭐What Other Teachers Are Saying:

  • Great open ended questions which helped you see exactly where students had misconceptions. Thank you! -Stephanie

  • The passages are short enough to keep students engaged and provides just enough detail to help them infer the answer(s) to the question(s) asked. Perfect for independent assignments, centers, or a ticket out the door at the end of class. I introduced the first story to my 5th grade reading students and we completed it together to show them how to completely answer the question(s) and provide evidence from the passage. They will complete the rest of the stories independently. Love this resource! -Kristy

  • My students absolutely loved this resource! The passages were short and enjoyable for my students to read. Thank you so much for creating such a fantastic resource! - Kay

  • Love that the passages are short enough to keep students engaged and is such a quick and easy way to assess progress in being able to make inferences from a text. -Diandra

  • This enhances the learning in the classroom. It is also a quick and easy way to see what students are understanding and what students are not. -Tammie
