Get ready for standardized reading testing in grades 4-5 using 1 poem, 1 paired text, 2 fictional book excerpts, 5 informational texts, and bonus strategies posters. Each reading passage is one page of text and one page of 8 multiple-choice comprehension questions with A, B, C, D answer choices. The questions include a variety of reading skills. They are great for reading comprehension practice and confidence-building, and the perfect length for interventions or homework!
As a bonus, I am also including my ARMED test strategies poster printables and student bookmarks. ARMED is an acronym I developed to help students remember the steps to take when working on a reading passage. ARMED works great and is super easy to remember.
Check out the preview to see the format of all the passages. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.
