Each nonfiction reading passage is one page of informational text and one page of multiple choice comprehension questions modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests, but with only 3 answer choices.

I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.

Texts are mostly in the 4th-5th grade reading level range using the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level index. I would recommend that most 3rd and some 4th grade teachers plan on doing these orally with students while modeling good reading strategies. Most 5th and 6th graders who are already familiar with this type of testing format should be able to complete these independently.

These passages have fun titles! As an added critical thinking BONUS, have students explain why they think the title of each reading passage was chosen.

I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.

Thank you from The Brighter Rewriter!
