Do your third grade, fourth and fifth grade students comprehend what they are reading? It is hard to know if what you students have comprehension when they read. You can challenge your readers with these original comprehension passages written by me. These passages are great for summer reading as well. You can challenge your student or child with these passages.
I have found when we practice similar skills over weeks, my readers seem to understand better. You can pick from 5 total passages all fiction that practice similar skills.
Show your students how to use context clues, make predictions, find the main idea, author's purpose, point of view, theme, figurative language and use text evidence. These reading passages will help you to see skills your readers may struggle with. These passages are long enough for independent work, but you can also use in a small group setting.
With each passage, there is a multiple choice and short answer option available. The answer key is included for easy grading.
If you like these, I have additional passages in my store.
