The 82 page packet is loaded with 8 reading passages (4 sets of paired texts) including 2 historical, 2 scientific, 2 biographical, and 2 technical pieces.

Each passage has comprehension questions for each text which target a variety of reading strategies including main idea, context clues, cause and effect, and more. There is also a vocabulary practice page for each set which includes Latin/Greek roots, synonym - antonym, matching, and more. There is a double sided paired text worksheet that asks question requiring the student to refer to both texts, to analyze, and combine information to formulate answers. Plus three writing prompts (narrative, expository and persuasive) are included for each set. This resource is definitely academic, but contains lots of engaging, thematic topics your kids will enjoy!
