Showing evidence is such an important skill for kids to use! These passages are designed to get kids to look back and find the answer in the text. Each passage comes with 5 questions-no prep need! Just print, copy, and give!!

This resource can be used in a number of different ways. You can simply make copies and use in the classroom or you can create what I call “Comp Files” and use as a homework resource. Simply attach the included reading log to one side of a file folder and then include a passage. Students take the comp file home each night and the parents sign off on it…the perfect way for getting in those parent contacts!

My evidence bookmarks are also included in this unit! These bookmarks feature evidence prompts such as “According to the text”, “Based on what I read”, and more!

See what others are saying about my Comp Files series!

"LOVE LOVE LOVE this set. It has encouraged my students to better utilize their text to prove their answers. The funny thing is I printed out the bookmarks for them and on their most recent quarterly test, over half of my students used them to begin their answers without me prompting them to do so! YAY! Thank you so much."

"I love the monthly topics and my kids love that they aren't overwhelming. It gets to the point of teaching and practicing finding evidence. We also like the images that are included! My kids were obsessed with the Beverly Cleary biography & couldn't believe she was 100!"

"Fabulous! My kids are responding to text so much better since using these files. They are PERFECT for homework!"

"Excellent as usual! The kids love the fun topics you pick each week and are really getting better about citing evidence with all of the fun practice during station time."

"I LOVE every single one of your comp files! You truly do such an INCREDIBLE job! They are perfect for my kiddos!"

"I love using these as quick comprehension checks. We highlight our answers in the text and then make our responses. Great product!"
