Paired Passages: Adopting a Shelter Dog?
The paired passages in this resource were written specifically to teach close reading of paired passages to 4th and 5th grade students.
While the reading level is intermediate, the questions are challenging. They were created to closely resemble questions from various state and national tests. Since these are practice passages and questions, each one is intended to act as a springboard for teaching reading skills that are necessary to excel on standard tests.
• paired passages including a poem and an article about dogs
• multiple-choice questions for each grade (4th and 5th)
• a set at each level which consider both paired passages.
• four writing prompts for each grade (4th and 5th), as some tests now include writing challenges
This high quality resource meets the standards listed in Common Core and the TEKS.
