Build comprehension using these 4 summer-themed nonfiction reading passages that feature one page of informational text and one page of multiple-choice questions with 3 answer choices. Topics include summertime first aid, summer insects, three kinds of water sports, and fireworks. The questions cover a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests. Great for EOY reading!
The thumbnails and preview show the text and question format. The measured reading levels range from 3rd-5th and are "fairly easy to read" or "average" according to the readability indicators. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.
Here is what you get with this resource:
• First Aid Aid informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Insect Insights informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Ocean Motions informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Sparkler Specs informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Answer Key (1 page)
• TOU & Credits (1 page)
First Aid Aid has a reading level in the upper 4th grade range. Insect Insights and Ocean Motions and are in the 5th grade range. Fireworks is in the lower 6th grade range.
I would recommend that 3rd and some 4th grade teachers plan on doing these orally with students while modeling good reading strategies. Most 5th and 6th graders who are already familiar with this type of testing format should be able to complete these independently.
As an added critical thinking BONUS, have students explain why they think the title of each reading passage was chosen.
I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.
