Reading has become one of my favorite topics to teach, but I noticed my students struggled with pulling out the main idea and supporting details. I worked on this all year with them, but it looked different when looking at narrative vs informational text.I also wanted to incorperate topics that reflected my students in some ways, their background knowledge and expose them to other topics they have not looked into before. Therefore, I decided to create my own.
This Informational Reading Passage Packet that can be used with the teacher, with a partner or independently. These passages were created in separate units, each unit is located in my store and will be linked below. This particular pack is only the Reading Passages as a stand alone! These were meant to use at the end of your unit, or in small groups to practice finding main idea and details, annotating or anything you'd like to focus on really !
The product includes a note to the teacher, 8 informational passages on various topics.
