80 Short Passages: ALL THE SEASONS GIANT BUNDLE

Using the passages has really helped my students stay focused on the reading and understanding the question answer relationship better. Understanding that sometimes the answer is within the text and that sometimes it's only text dependent is a huge skill for my 2nd graders. I hope you find them useful!
