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 textual evidence that answers each basic comprehension question using a simple color-code.

The February pack is perfect for learning about Black History Month and more, including Groundhog Day, Presidents Day, Valentine's Day, 100th Day of School, and Dental Health Month!

This Text Detectives pack includes 11 non-fiction passages:
- Groundhog Day

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!
