Supplement your poetry unit with 6 passages that each feature a public domain poem and 4 multiple-choice comprehension questions on one page. The questions are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests and are mainly word meanings, inferences, and questions about comparisons (without using the words simile or metaphor). The last question on each passage asks students about the type of poem (free verse, humorous, lyrical, narrative). Great for morning work, homework, assessment, or centers!
The readability levels of these passages is in the 3rd-5th grade range. Please check the preview to help you determine whether or not they would be suitable for your students. 3rd graders will need more teacher support with decoding and vocabulary. You can purchase with confidence, as I have 32 years of experience in preparing upper elementary students for standardized reading testing!

• Friends poem and questions (1 page)
