This Common Core Practice Lesson Packet contains 15 reading comprehension QUESTIONS and ANSWERS, which focus on the Common Core standards and are modeled after various state exams. My goal is for test prep to become a natural and easy part of the curriculum, instead of something else you have to create. Give yourself a breath of fresh air with this NO PREP curriculum that integrates test prep within the teaching of literature.

One of the things I struggle with the most is preparing my students for all kinds of exams that they will encounter. With this EASY-TO-TEACH reading comprehension packet, you can practice with your students, so they will feel more confident analyzing texts for theme/central idea, words/phrases, citing evidence, structure, author's claims, and author's purpose. They are great for pull-outs, push-ins, whole groups, small groups, or sub plans.
