Product Description
Paired Texts targets reading comprehension using two different texts, (both fiction) on the same themed topic. This 82 page packet is loaded with 8 passages (4 sets of paired texts) which highlight folktales from around the world.

Each passage has comprehension questions which target a variety of reading strategies including compare contrast, summary, theme, cause and effect, and more. There is also a vocabulary practice page for each set which includes context clues, synonym antonym, matching and more. There is a double sided paired text worksheet that asks question requiring the student to refer to both texts, to analyze, and combine information to formulate answers. Plus three writing prompts (narrative, expository and persuasive) for each set. A test prep resource for sure, but absolutely engaging topics your kids will enjoy!

Specifically, this set includes:
8 Double Sided Passages with a total of 4 paired texts

Happiness Theme:
Moonflower (Japanese Folktale)
The Key to Happiness (Brazilian Folktale)

Leadership Theme:
The Lion and the Beetle (African Folktale)
King of the Jungle (Folktale from the Philippines)

Greed Theme:
The Broken Promise (Japanese Folktale)
Island of the Sun (Chinese Folktale)

Wisdom Theme:
The Flying Ship (Russian Folktale)
Magic Pomegranate (Jewish Folktale)

Vocabulary page for each set (total of 4)
Double Sided Paired Text Questions for each set (total of 4 = 8 pages)
Narrative, Expository and Persuasive Writing Prompts for each set (total of 24 pages)

I always make what I need for my classroom and this is no exception! I love this set and think you will too. I think it’s really hard as a teacher to find materials that are well–suited as paired texts, while having the supplemental components all in one place. To me, this is a real time saver for busy teachers, while been an effective tool at the same time!
