PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The ORIGINAL Text Detectives for Color-Coded Comprehension and Text Evidence! :) 16 passages!

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 system. Perfect for introducing close reading in a fun and engaging way students LOVE! (Aligns with Common Core!)

The October pack incorporates science, social studies, and engaging topics kids love! Celebrate Oktoberfest, Yom Kippur, Columbus Day, and Canadian Thanksgiving. Read about classic seasonal themes like pumpkins, bats, spiders, and nocturnal animals! Learn about Noah Webster, Leif Erikson, and creating a plan for Fire Safety Month!

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, and they are fantastic for an introduction to close reading!

Not sure if the reading level will be right for your students? Please see the FREE sampler of 5 Text Detectives passages in my store!
