Product Description
We modeled this test prep material after Common Core Standardized Reading Examinations that have been piloted and administered nationwide. You will find that these fiction passages and questions will mimic the intensity that your students will encounter on this year's Common Core Standardized Exams.

Like all Common Core material, the students will be required to engage in active and close reading in order to be successful. All paragraphs are numbered for questions that require the student to "look back" and analyze a particular aspect of the text.

The following reading skills are assessed within our preparation packet:
main idea and supporting details...recalling facts and details...understanding sequence...cause and effect...comparing and contrasting...describing characters....inferring character traits...determining theme...describing setting...summarizing...recognizing point of view...genre identification...recognizing and interpreting figurative language...making predictions...drawing conclusions and making inferences...finding word meaning in context...and author's purpose.

Each fiction passage is followed by 8 text dependent multiple choice questions and 1 short response question (answer requires text details), for a total of 10 points. The 5 passages will give you, the teacher, an opportunity to track your students' progress along the way.

Included in this bundle:
5 fiction passages
5 assessments (multiple choice and short response)

Because we find "reading levels" to be quite subjective; these materials can be used for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Take a look at a sample text in the preview, so that you can get an idea of the difficulty level.

With this product, your students will gain invaluable experience with the type of questioning that is coming their way on this year's standardized exams.

*Great for whole group instruction, small group instruction, private tutoring sessions, homework and classroom assessments too!
