This pack will make prepping for small groups a breeze... get the BUNDLE pack here for $2 off the price of buying them separately!
9 different NON-FICTION passages and 8 FICTION passages, each one Common Core connected... just print and use! No prep!
This pack features original passages, written by me.
Each passage is used on THREE worksheets so you can differentiate.
On the first worksheet- students read the passage and then color questions and matching answers the same color...
Use the 2nd worksheet- students read the passage and then respond to questions.
Use the 3rd worksheet- students read the passage then write the questions that would lead to the answers given!
You choose which page is best for each of your groups and each group reads the same passage, but uses critical thinking skills differently! The CCSS skill being practiced is labeled at the bottom of each page.
