Product Description
This reading comprehension packet includes 20 passages designed to help kids work toward the goals of reading, comprehending and thoughtfully responding to Guided Reading Levels M and N text.

There are two pages of questions with each story. The first page includes five text-based multiple choice questions. The second page is comprised of two written response questions.

The questions focus on topics such as central message, main idea of specific paragraphs, author's purpose, inference, recognizing statements of opinion and problem solving.

As students are learning to use evidence to support their thinking, I have them find and highlight the section of text they use to justify their answer.

The following passages are included in this pack:
★ Aloe Vera
★ A Habit of Saving
★ All About Sleep
★ Volunteers: Improving the World One Act at a Time
★ My Shadow
★ Sound
★ The First Kite
★ Spotting Giraffes
★ The Amazing Gingko Tree
★ The Water Girl
★ Water Systems
★ What is That Dollar Really Worth?
★ The Kite that Helped Bridge Two Nations
★ Mark Tyson: Marine Naturalist
★ Communicating with our Hands
★ Children’s Rights
★ Mystery of the Homing Pigeon
★ Wildlife Conservationists
★ Seed Dispersal
★ Portmanteau

These passages are perfect for use in close reading lessons, as assessments, as morning work, for fluency work or for homework.

These activities support the following Student Outcomes and related Common Core Standards:

★ Students will identify the main topic of a multi-paragraph text as well as the focus of specific paragraphs within the text (ELA-Literacy.RI.2.2).
★ Students will determine the meaning of words and phrases in a text (ELA-Literacy.RI.2.4 ).
★ Students will ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers (ELA-Literacy.RL.3.1 & RI3.1 ).
★ Students will read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension (ELA-LITERACY.RF.2.4 and RF.3.4).
★ Students will read grade-level text with purpose and understanding (ELA-LITERACY.RF.2.4.A and RF.3.4.A).

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)

* Please note: An answer key is included for the multiple choice questions. For many of the written response questions, answers can vary and are considered correct as long as the student logically uses evidence from the text to support his or her answer.
