Cite Text Evidence | Explicit Details | Quote Accurately Differentiated Reading Passages and Questions for Reading Comprehension
Perfect for grades 3 – 6
As students enter third grade, they are introduced to the idea of referencing the text as they answer questions. They’ve answered who, what, when, why, and how questions before, but now we ask them to PROVE IT! This is a huge cognitive leap for students. They must initially refer to the text to prove their answer in third grade. In fourth grade, we require them to differentiate between explicit and implicit information when backing up their responses with evidence. By fifth grade, we demand that students quote the portion of the text which supports their answer. Mastery of these skills will lay the foundation for higher-level reading comprehension, creative writing, and research.
This resource will make your students prove their answers by requiring varying types of evidence to back up their responses. I’ve differentiated each text so you can meet the needs of each reader in your class and improve reading comprehension class-wide.
Included in this resource:
This resource contains ten differentiated fiction passages. There are three levels of each passage so you can easily differentiate with your students. The levels are based on word count and Lexile levels, which can be found in the top left corner of each passage. The passages were written to provide students with multiple opportunities to infer.
