Product Description
This pack was created to help young readers struggling with comprehension. The little readers are one page, foldable mini books. Students read one page of the text and then answer a question. A prompt box directing them to answer a specific question is included on each page. This is done purposefully to divide the text in meaningful “chunks” that a struggling reader can retain. This pack specifically addresses the determining the author's purpose for writing each page.

Two mini books are included in this pack. There are 3 levels of each mini book. The books are written on approximately end first grade, beginning second grade, and mid-second grade level. The front of each page has a box with a code for the reading level. The codes are:

• 1E= End First
• 2B= Beginning Second Grade
• 2M= Mid-Second Grade

The pages with comprehension questions include child friendly lines for writing and clear directions.

**Please note there are no running recording sheets for the texts. These texts are three separate paragraphs relating to the topic, but do not make a cohesive text. Each paragraph is simply written to match the CCS standard where students determine if the author wrote to describe, answer, or explain.

Please note: This pack is part of a bundle. Please do not purchase this in addition to the bundle. You can find the bundle here.
