This product is designed to teach beginner readers to not only read, but look for text – based evidence while they answer questions! The passages and questions are simple, yet develop essential skills.
This may be a first interaction with multiple choice questions, so take time to review how to answer questions. I teach my students to read the questions first so they know what to look for while they read! There are a few questions, in which students need to HIGHLIGHT text-based evidence, proving where they found their answers.
* I have my students highlight text-based evidence for each question and write the number of the question next to the sentence they highlighted. This embeds test-prep into authentic teaching.*
Many of the High Frequency Sight Words are in these passages as well. I have my kiddos find the words and highlight or circle them. We then add them to our classroom word wall.
Common Core Standards for K & 1 are addressed in these passages/questions:
ELA.RL.1.1 - Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA.RL.K.1 -With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA.RF.1.3g - Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words (for beginning of year words).
ELA.RF.K.3c - Read common high-frequency words by sight.
This packet contains 15 spring themed reading passages with 3 questions to accompany each passage!
Hope these passages can be helpful to you in your guided reading groups! They could also be sent home as homework to do with parents.
