Product Description
Are you dealing with reluctant or struggling readers in your upper elementary or middle school ELA classroom? Or are you and your students just tired of the typical mainstream reading texts used in many ELA programs? Then these high-interest "printable/no prep" articles are the answer to get your students excited again about reading, to keep them on task and engaged, and to provide them with Common Core-aligned assessment practice!

This bundled resource currently contains all FORTY individual products listed and linked below and is priced at a huge 50% discount compared to purchasing these individual resources separately in my store! Now you can enjoy any or all FORTY of the Mystery and Wonder informational text readings and assessments with your class AND motivate and engage your reluctant readers with these high-interest articles and questions. Why not plan a unit around this collection, that's what I have done for several years and the kids have loved it! There are so many great websites and YouTube videos to go along with many of these topics! Each of the 40 resources follows a similar format: a high-interest article of 750-1000 words followed by approximately 20-30 assessment questions which target key informational text reading standards and require close reading of the passage.

Please download and look at the Preview for a full Table of Contents and a better understanding of the format of this collection.

CUSTOM BUNDLES: Are you interested in some but not all of the 40 resources in this bundled collection? Then create your own custom-made bundle! Just send me an email at with the titles of the individual resources from this collection you would like to buy (a minimum of six). I’ll then create the bundle with only the titles you request. Soon after you will receive a link to order your personalized collection from my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You will have 7 days to place your order, and best of all, you will save 25% over the individual resource price! For example, if you order a seven-resource custom bundle, you will pay $10.50 instead of the $14 it would normally cost to purchase the same seven resources individually. Please email me if you have any further questions about this custom bundle offer!
