Engage your students with high-interest reading comprehension passages designed for each LITERACY AND INFORMATIONAL STANDARD.
Each lengthy passage is written with 3 differentiated reading levels
with or without a dyslexic font
to meet the needs of all your students. They are perfect for CLOSE READING. The full-page passage provides students with a complete narrative, drama, poem, or informational text to answer the questions effectively. The levels of differentiation range from 550-1000 for Grades 3-6.
The questions were formulated in a STEP-BY-STEP process. There are 10 multiple choice questions in the form of TASK CARDS
or a worksheet. These questions were designed for students to get familiar with the text with some deeper-level questions mixed in. Then there are 10 rigorous open-ended questions specifically designed for text-dependent analysis so students can think critically and question their assumptions.
This resource 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!
