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!
This sampler pack includes 3 sample passages about snow from the December pack to thank my followers! The passages are:
- The Science of Snow
- Snowflake Bentley (biography)
- Freddie Flake's Water Cycle Journey
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!
