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 differentiated. Two levels are provided: on grade level for 4-5 and on grade level for 6-7.

THIS IS NOW AVAILABLE for the DIGITAL classroom! Click here to get this in Slides and Forms instead of PDF format.

Do you need lower grades paired texts about natural disasters? Grab them here!

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

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 Native American Legend called "The Flood and The Rainbow."

There are two styles of passages provided to help suit various needs. Choose the style you like!

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

In my 4th grade classroom, I used even the higher levels of the texts for close reading and annotating lessons. We did them together to 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! My students 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 some examples before you ever take a grade.
