Interested in the whole year? Please consider purchasing the FULL-YEAR Text Detectives Bundle for the best value!
Do your students have trouble finding text evidence to support their answers to basic comprehension questions? After reading short passages, your students will underline the text-based evidence that answers each basic comprehension question using a simple color-code system. Perfect for introducing Common Core close reading in a fun and engaging way students LOVE, and the passages integrate science, social studies, holidays, and seasonal topics, too!
For EACH month August through May, there are about 10 non-fiction passages, 5 fiction passages, and 1 passage of another genre (poetry, recipe, etc.) This bundle includes these products:
Text Detectives- August Edition
Text Detectives- September Edition
Text Detectives- October Edition
Text Detectives- November Edition
Text Detectives- December Edition
***NOTE: The October edition is now included! Please re-download :)

Aligned to CCSS R.L. 2.1, R.L. 3.1, R.L. 4.1 and R.I. 2.1, R.I. 3.1, and R.I 4.1, this Text Detectives pack is easy to use in your classroom as morning work, reading comprehension practice, a center activity, or homework. These can even be used to assess your students' ability to prove their answers in the text or as a relevant and engaging test prep activity! Many passages integrate seasonal science or social studies content to support your content instruction, but others are more generic to give you planning flexibility. I love using these passages with my RTI students in Title I or reading intervention!
