This reading comprehension passages pack contains 15 different reading passages that target both COMPREHENSION and FLUENCY and have a HANDS ON component.
All passages are related to SCIENCE and designed for 1st or 2nd grade.Due to challenging vocabulary and concepts all passages are reduced to 4-5 sentences, but the students are required to read each passage 3 times.
6.Living and Nonliving Things
13.Bears are Mammals
14.Dogs and Wolves
15.Where Do Animals Live?
The students will have to:
*read each passage 3 times and color a star each time they read it (for FLUENCY)
*answer 2 comprehension questions and color the evidence in the text ( I usually help my students by asking : " Can you find the words in the text that answer this question? Great. Color those words red.)
*cut and paste 2 text related statements on a True/False chart (this is the hands on component to make the reading more fun and engaging)
NOTE: I included a version without the coloring part for easy differentiation.
