Product Description

Paired Texts targets reading comprehension using two different passages, (one fiction and one nonfiction) on the same themed topic. This 82 page packet is loaded with 8 passages (4 sets of paired texts) including 2 historical (Revolutionary War Spies), 2 scientific (Kangaroos), 2 biographical (Astronauts), and 2 technical pieces (Skywriting).

Each passage has comprehension questions for each which target a variety of reading strategies including main idea, theme, cause and effect, and more. There is also a vocabulary practice page for each set which includes Latin/Greek roots, 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. Rigorous for sure, but absolutely engaging topics your kids will enjoy!
