NO PREP Reading Comprehension Passages!
Get your students ready for the RIGOR of CLOSE READING with these reading comprehension worksheets! Each worksheet contains reading passages as well as 4 comprehension questions that will prepare your students to answer in complete sentences and to answer text-dependent questions. Many of my First Graders are not quite ready for the rigor of CLOSE READING yet so I use these reading comprehension worksheets to prepare them. The first 11 worksheets contain simple reading passages to get your students comfortable with the layout of the passage and the questions. Passages 12-39 contain DIFFERENTIATED versions of each story so that you can use these with your students who are reading at grade level as well as your students who may be struggling. The simple format ensures that ALL students will be successful and gain the confidence and skills they need to dive deeper into the text.
I use these many different ways! I use them as morning work, as spiraled review throughout the year, as homework, in my literacy center, with my Guided Reading groups and as Shared Reading with partners. The possibilities are endless. This packet contains 39 pages of reading comprehension worksheets that give your students the confidence they need to be able to answer questions with evidence from the text.
