These engaging reading comprehension passages are FOR LITERACY STANDARDS.
They offer 3 levels of differentiation and 10 open-ended text-dependent questions and are perfect for CLOSE READING. Each passage is a full-page to provide students with a complete narrative, drama, or poem to answer the questions effectively. The levels of differentiation range from 550-930 for Grades 3-6. The questions are aligned to Fourth Grade Common Core Standards and designed for students to answer with text evidence from the passage. It works well for Grades 4-5 because teachers can benefit from using all 3 differentiated levels. However, if you are a Grade 3 or Grade 6 teacher, you may be able to use this resource. Please see the teacher notes for specifics on Lexile levels. Do you want to change a question to meet your classroom needs? No problem. The PDFs are editable!
