As implied by the title, students are not required to read a passage. All questions can be answered through deductive reasoning.
The leveled practice booklets are extremely versatile. They can be used in any number of small-group settings, but also work extremely well as a whole-group activity. Examples -
• transitioning back to academics after lunch, recess, or P.E.
• “carpet time”
With questions and answer choices read aloud, struggling readers can stay engaged and enjoy the experience of success.
Four booklets and a Teacher’s Guide are bundled in the download:
Level one – Questions are straight forward and vocabulary is basic. Only one answer choice can possibly be correct. Students use basic inferencing and cause-and-effect skills by connecting key words in the question and answer choices.
Level two – The way questions are worded is slightly more complex than at level one. In some cases, more than one answer choice contains words that relate to the question.
Level three – Questions are related to a fictional narrative that unfolds through the questions themselves. Students use clues within the questions and answer choices to piece together enough information to select reasonable anwers.
Level four – At this level, historical narratives and expositories unfold through the questions and answers.
Teacher’s Guide – Strategies are suggested that can expand the lesson into more specific/rigorous student expectations.
