Product Description
This pack is a great resource to use throughout the year to help your students show their comprehension of an informational text. The passages and response questions are perfect for a 15-20 minute lesson. The passages are written at a 1st grade level (F&P Level G-J, with 100-151 words). Based on the ability of your students, they may read the passage on their own, read it with you or you may read it to them. You will be able to cover several CCSS through the use of this pack on a weekly basis.

These passages are a perfect way to include NF at a readable 1st grade level in your weekly lessons!

The NF passages can be used in a weeklong, daily format OR just once a week in a small group guided reading lesson. The weeklong format includes graphic organizers with a focus on making predictions, asking questions, main topic, key details, non fiction text features, vocabulary and writing about reading.

3 different versions of each passage with the comprehension questions are included. There is a color version, b&w version and a b&w version that includes slightly different questions and an additional question (for your higher students). These can simply be printed, copied and used right away!

There is also a main passage which is full page and has full color- this I recommend displaying on a SmartBoard or simply in front of a small group (multiple copies of this page are not needed).

****Please download the preview to try out a freebie sampler of one of the passages. {All versions included in the freebie.}****

15 NF passages with comprehension questions- African Animal Theme

2. Female Lions (Level I)
