This is the full year bundle of Text Detectives Jr. for Color-Code Comprehension and Text Evidence! :) This bundle includes over 160 Text Detectives Jr. passages for August through May.
A full list of passage topics can be found at the original Text Detectives bundle. This bundle is now complete!
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS THE TEXT DETECTIVES JR.- FOR SECOND GRADE. YOU CAN ALSO FIND A 3RD GRADE VERSION IN MY STORE! Using the two packs together can also help you differentiate for the stronger/ lower readers in your 2nd or 3rd grade classroom. You can see the 3rd grade bundle here:Text Detectives for Third Grade Bundle
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 Common Core close reading in a fun and engaging way students LOVE, and the passages integrate science, social studies, holidays, and seasonal topics, too!
For EACH month August through May, there will be about 10 non-fiction passages, 5 fiction passages, and 1 passage of another genre (poetry, recipe, etc.) to challenge your students. This is designed for about an average 2nd grader's reading level.
Aligned to CCSS R.L. 2.1, R.L. 3.1, R.I. 2.1, and R.I. 3.1, 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!
