Do you teach 4th or 5th grade reading? This reading resource will be a lifesaver! It includes everything you need to supplement your reading instruction for the included reading skills (see below for the skills included).

I am currently working on updates and new resources to add to this bundle. As additions are added, the price will increase. Lock in the price now for the lowest price the bundle will be.

This HUGE reading resource is a bundle of 18 of my reading resources and reading activities for 4th and 5th grade reading and literacy skills.

NOTE: All of the resources in this bundle now include Google Slides or Google Forms (most are designed for use with Google Slides).

This is a must-have resource if you teach 4th or 5th Grade Reading!

All of these units include passages written specifically for the skills. There are multiple passages in each unit so you can use some of the reading passages for modeling, some for instruction, and some for assessment.

Each resource includes some or all of the following:

✅ Teaching Posters/Anchor Charts

✅ Essential Questions

✅ Multiple Passages Specific for the Skill(s)

✅Graphic Organizers and Interactive Notebook Templates

✅ Task Cards or Other Small Group Reading Activities


  1. Lesson plans or lessons are NOT included. This huge resource includes the reading activities and resources that you need for your personal lesson plans and instruction.
  2. The texts included in the resources are NOT available at multiple levels.
  3. If you teach 4th grade and have students who read significantly below grade level, I do not recommend this resource.
