PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Build comprehension and confidence using these high-interest, nonfiction mini-reading passages that have the informational text and multiple choice questions on one page. The questions include a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests with 4 answer choices. The majority of the texts have reading levels in the upper 3rd to upper 4th grade range.

Check out the thumbnails and preview to see the format the passages and to get an idea of the level of reading difficulty. You can also click on each title below to find out more about each individual set of mini-passages. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.

This is a GROWING BUNDLE, which means that if you purchase NOW, all future downloads will be available to you for FREE. For everyone who waits, the price of this bundle will go up as I add each new set.
