Here’s what other teachers are saying about this resource:

♥ These are the best passages and question sheets for having students provide text evidence for close reading. I especially love the numbered lines. I will certainly use these often! -Carist K.

♥ Thank you for a really great resource. I feel it is definitely worth every penny I spent. I plan to use these nonfiction passages during my Science and Social Studies time to provide additional nonfiction reading, thinking and responding opportunities for my 2nd grade students. I am amazed at how well you have covered topics in those content areas. An additional benefit will be helping students build the background knowledge so necessary for success not just in nonfiction comprehension but also learning in the content areas. Thanks again for a great resource. –Buckeye Beagle “Knows”

♥ This is a great resource! My students were struggling with looking back in the text to find information and this has helped them immensely! –Maggie N.
