*****

If you have previously purchased my paired passages about Jose Altuve and Yasiel Puig, you'll notice the passage about Altuve in this resource is similar. I have added information about Altuve winning the 2017 AL MVP Award and how he was impacted by helping after Hurricane Harvey.

I have also created this resource for grade 4 and grade 5.
