Fiction STAAR Practice Passages with "stop and jot" sections for students to respond to text. Each passage comes WITH this section and WITHOUT. Students are asked to stop and write about what they have read three times BEFORE they get to the questions. I use stop and jot with struggling readers that need to practice monitoring their thinking. However, you can print practice tests without stop and jot sections. The stop and jot sections focus on inferencing.
~Rubric for grading questions if you choose to take a grade on "thinking" part. ~Questions are on separate page, so students are able to read, write, and think through text before questions are given to them.
