Do you want to work on comprehension and teach your students to use text evidence? This packet is perfect to do this in a quick way throughout the month of January. In this packet there are 12 different passages that can be paired together or read in any order. Each passage comes with a comprehension page to go along with it. This unit can be used for distance learning and google classroom with the new TpT digital tool.
The Paired Titles included are:
- The Lost Mitten & Mittens
- The Hat & Playing in the Snow
- Martin Luther King Jr. & Wally & Sam
- All About Penguins & Penny the Penguin
- Polar Bear Adaptations & The Three Bears
- How to Build a Snowman & It’s a Snow Day
The strategies that are included are:
- Author’s purpose
- Text to Self
- Text Evidence
- Bold-Faced Words
- 3 non-fiction passages
- 2 How-to passages
- 7 fiction passages
I have also included anchor charts to display while introducing and teaching as well as 2 different compare and contrast activities.
As a first grade teacher I do my best to help prepare my students for the future and testing. One of the words that comes up a lot on tests is passage. To help my students understand what a passage is, I have created this packet called Paired Passages.
In my room we spent one week focusing on what a passage was and including the word passage as a vocabulary word. From then on, we complete a paired passage each week to review and work on different comprehension strategies. This is a great quick check for understanding as well.
In 1st grade I read them aloud but if used in 2nd grade, the students could complete independently.
