Our goal for this pack is to help your kiddos be better prepared to respond to text in written form and provide evidence from text to support their answer! The passages are NOT leveled for any particular grade level. Rather, we wanted to focus on the written response prompts. This pack was created from the new demands for kiddos to do written response and provide proof and evidence for their thoughts. We scaffolded these passages so kiddos first have LOTS of support to provide a written response, then we take away a bit of support, and finally students are responding and providing evidence on their own. We labeled each section as BOY, MOY, and EOY to help organize the level of support each prompt provides. EACH SECTION INCLUDES 18 PASSAGES; 54 PASSAGES IN ALL. Based on the needs of your class, you may choose to use these passages in whole group, small group, or independently (if your kiddos are strong readers).
