After reading each passage or poem, students will answer a variety of comprehension questions with multiple choice answer options.
This resource contains 20 reading comprehension passages (10 nonfiction passages, 8 fiction passages, and 2 poems). Beneath each passage, there are six multiple choice comprehension questions. These reading passages can be used in so many ways! Some options include using them as a test prep activity, as morning work or homework, as part of a small group lesson, or as part of a distance learning activity.
The comprehension questions vary with each passage, which allows your students the opportunity to review several reading skills at once.
The majority of these passages (15) fall into the 610 to 800 lexile range. Five of them are written at the 410-600 lexile range.
The skills targeted in these passages include:
This set now includes a digital option, too, making it ideal for distance learning situations! I made a version of each reading passage in this set that is compatible with Google Forms. You can send the Google Form to your students or you can share a link in Google Classroom. (Step-by-step directions are included.)
