Problem and Solution - Let's take "text evidence" to a new level! I created this pack because I was in need of a set of comprehension passages that were concentrated specifically on one comprehension strategy. This pack contains 20 manageable passages that focus on identifying the Problem and Solution of the story. Having a set of focused passages makes it easy to follow-up with your whole group mini lessons and comprehension lessons within your small groups. Or, use some of the passages as assessments to ensure student understanding and application of the strategy. These would also make great quick-checks that you could use to target students who are still in need of additional help with the strategy.

Students read each passage three times for fluency and focus, keeping track each time they read. Then, your students will interact directly with the text as they color-code and identify the problem and solution within the passage. Finally, students will illustrate the passage to demonstrate their overall comprehension of the story.

The pack contains problem and solution posters and smaller posters that contain visual aides to help students remember and utilize the color-coding strategy as they identify the problem and solution.

These passages are ideal for first graders, second graders, struggling third grade readers, and intervention students.
