The ORIGINAL Text Detectives for Color-Coded Comprehension and Text Evidence! :) This bundle includes 84 Text Detectives passages for January through May!
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 close reading in a fun and engaging way students LOVE!
For EACH month January 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- January Edition
Text Detectives- February Edition
Text Detectives- March Edition
Text Detectives- April Edition

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!
