Finding high-quality guided reading passages that will be engaging for your first-grade students can be challenging. Students love these passages because they are high-interest, engaging, and at their level. Teachers love how they include comprehension questions, fluency practice, and NO PREP!
This resource includes 10 original, non-fiction reading passages at the guided reading level E. The reading passages will create a high level of engagement for your first grade beginning readers and are perfect for their reading level. A level E is the equivalent of a first-grade reading level.
The titles of the fiction reading passages are as follows:
Each reading passage includes a cover page in color and black/white.
There is one page of reading comprehension questions per passage.
The comprehension questions include a mix of short answer, and multiple-choice questions, and drawing and labeling a response.
There is an answer key included for every page.
Need to do running records for your students? There is a running record recording sheet for each guided reading passage.
Looking for a way to practice fluency for your beginning readers? There is a recording sheet with the word count listed, and a chart to mark the words correct/incorrect for the first, second, and third reading.
