This pack included leveled options, so that this can be used with different age and ability groups. I have included three leveled activity sheet options. The first option is a set of multiple choice questions where student select the correct main idea, meaning of the word, and inference/prediction. The second option provided for each passage is where students must write the main idea, meaning of the word, and inference/prediction. The third option is identical to the second option except that large handwriting lines are provided. I have also included center options for each passage. For the centers, there is a one page colored version of the story, a one page black and white version of the story, with three options for response sheets; multiple choice, short answer with small lines, and short answers with handwriting lines.

Every pack requires students to write or choose the main idea and best definition of a word based on context clues. Three passages require students to make an inference. Nine passages require students to make a prediction.
