This 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 and common spelling patterns 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.
This packet contains 8 high interest nonfiction reading passages about animals with 4 multiple choice questions & 3 written response questions to accompany each passage!
* Blue Marlins
* Red Eyed Tree Frogs
* Sea Otters
* Eastern Gray Squirrels
* Polar Bears
* Hyacinth Macaws
Hope these passages can be helpful to you in your guided reading groups! They could also be sent home as homework to do with parents.
