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 March pack is perfect for learning about Women's History Month and more, including St. Patrick's Day, Read Across America Day, the Iditarod, Pi Day, Johnny Appleseed, Spring, and Mardi Gras!

This Text Detectives pack includes 10 non-fiction passages:

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!

Not sure if the reading level will be right for your students? Please download the PREVIEW of this pack for a FREE sample passage about Dr. Seuss.
