Product Description
Paired passages, or paired texts, meet the demand for more rigorous, complex texts with Common Core- especially these passages that students can use to compare and build knowledge to integrate information and draw conclusions. The passages in this set are in the “stretch” range for 2nd grade. They are leveled for third grade readability. For this reason, I would not recommend giving these as independent reading in second grade. They work well in whole group or small group close reading and annotating lessons!

*****************************************************************************

I have included informational passages about natural disasters covering hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and tsunamis, how to prepare for earthquakes, and floods. There is also a story about a family in a flood.

There are two styles of passages provided to help suit various needs. Choose the style you like! There are not multiple levels of passages included.

*****************************************************************************

In my 4th grade classroom, I use each of the texts for close reading and annotating lessons- this helps ensure the students fully comprehend the texts before having to answer questions about both texts together. Click here to see a blog post showing how I model purposeful annotating! You can use each of the texts for close reading and annotating lessons- this helps ensure the students fully comprehend the texts before having to answer questions about both texts together. Students should use their annotated texts to answer the questions. If your students have not been exposed to paired text questions, you may want to walk them through several examples before you ever take a grade.

Please look at the preview to see a snapshot of the set!
