Kids LOVE this informational text reading passage about the Kraken and giant squids. Two versions are included. The one-page version is one paragraph and 4 multiple choice comprehension questions with 4 answer choices. The two-page version is one page of informational text and one page of 9 multiple choice comprehension questions with 3 answer choices. The questions cover a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests.
Both versions of the passage are especially great for interventions, modeling strategies, and building confidence! I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.
The readability level of the mini-passage is in the 3rd grade range, while the longer passage is in the 5th grade range. One way that I use them both is to work the longer passage along with my 3rd graders while modeling good reading strategies, then assign the shorter passage as independent work a few days later.
Here is what you get with this free resource:
• Release the Kraken informational text and questions (1 page)
• Release the Kraken informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Answer Key (1 page)
• TOU & Credits (1 page)
I’d appreciate your rating and your feedback.
