    Identifying the reading skill that students are struggling with is only half the battle - it’s so frustrating to search for the perfect reading comprehension passage to target your desired skill. My Fiction and Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Passages were written intentionally to give targeted, repeated practice on twenty discrete reading skills covering both fiction and informational texts. My making inferences passages have clues lurking for students to make unsaid connections, my figurative language passages are chock full of similes and metaphors, and my firsthand and secondhand account passages have clear elements to compare and contrast. No more searching high and low for reading passages at different Lexile levels and forcing comprehension questions that target critical reading skills - with 3 differentiated levels for every single passage in the bundle and repeated practice for twenty discrete skills, your students will be stronger readers and thinkers in no time!
