This recently updated product is designed to teach beginner readers to not only read, but look for text – based evidence while they answer questions! The passages and questions are simple, yet develop essential skills.
This may be a first interaction with multiple choice questions, so take time to review how to answer questions. I teach my students to read the questions first so they know what to look for while they read!
Many of the High Frequency Sight Words are in these passages as well. I have my kiddos find the words and highlight or circle them. We then add them to our classroom word wall.
Common Core Standards for K, 1 & 2 are addressed in these passages/questions:
ELA.RI.2.1 - Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA.RI.1.1 - Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA.RI.K.1 -With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA.RF.1.3g - Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words (for beginning of year words).
ELA.RF.K.3c - Read common high-frequency words by sight.
This packet contains 15 nonfiction animal reading passages with 3 questions to accompany each passage!
Animals in this packet:
- brown bears
- puffer fish
- monarch butterflies
Hope these nonfiction animal passages can be helpful to you in your guided reading groups! They could also be sent home as homework to do with parents.
