  • StandardsNEW

This pack features five nonfiction passages, which breaks down to four expository nonfiction passages and one biography. There are also five literature passages. This breaks down to one realistic fiction passage, one historical fiction passage, one folktale, one poem, and one fable presented as a short Readers Theater script.

This pack features two stories written on the same topic - Tornado Warnings (nonfiction) and The Day the Sky Went Black (historical fiction). These stories can be used together for a fiction/nonfiction paired text passage. A graphic organizer is included to compare the two passages.

Each passage is written on two different reading levels. Version A of the passage is written on either a second or third grade level. Version B is written at either a fourth or fifth grade level. The poem is offered on one level. Check out the preview for more details!

Each passage features 5 text dependent comprehension questions. The questions are presented in a variety of formats. Some questions are multiple choice. Some multiple choice questions require students to select two answer choices. Some questions require students to complete a graphic organizer. A text dependent analysis question (TDA) is included with each passage.

Although the passages are offered on two different reading levels, the questions are identical. This means that you can teach the same comprehension skills on two different reading levels – perfect for differentiation!

All comprehension questions are text dependent and aligned to the Common Core Standards. Answer keys are included for each passage.
