Paired passages, or paired texts, are a great way to hit multiple ELA learning objectives at once. This resource includes one fiction and one nonfiction passage, along with Common-Core-style literal and inferential questions. The texts will stretch your 3rd graders and low 4th graders and be perfect for practicing comprehension skills with 5th graders.
