These print and go, no-prep worksheets are perfect for increasing skills in comprehending and understanding non-fiction texts in speech therapy sessions! So many SLPs loved my original non-fiction texts resource and wanted MORE! Here is a huge expansion pack to that original resource!

These printables teach several language-based reading comprehension strategies including previewing the text for important information prior to reading, breaking the text up into smaller sections, answering comprehension questions, identifying the main idea (in a scaffolded, supported way!), and then summarizing the text. In addition, each page includes 4 key vocabulary words from the text so they're a great way to target vocabulary words in context!

This resource includes 50 non-fiction text worksheets (plus a couple of bonus visuals and simple activities).

All of the worksheets include editable text boxes so that you can type directly on the worksheet on a computer in addition to Google Slides™️! In addition, the entire packet is black and white for easy printing.
