Do your students have trouble finding text evidence to support their answers to basic comprehension questions? After reading short passages, your students will color-code the evidence in the text that answers each basic comprehension question.

Aligned to CCSS R.L. 2.1, R.L. 3.1, R.L. 4.1 and R.I. 2.1, R.I. 3.1, and R.I 4.1, this Text Detectives pack is easy to use in your classroom as morning work, reading comprehension practice, a center activity, or homework. These can even be used to assess your students' ability to prove their answers in the text or as a relevant and engaging test prep activity! Many passages integrate seasonal science or social studies content to support your content instruction, but others are more generic to give you planning flexibility. I love using these passages with my RTI students in Title I or reading intervention!
Not sure if the reading level will be right for your students? It should be about an independent 2nd grade level. Please download the PREVIEW of this pack for a FREE sample passage about Dr. Seuss.
