Product Description
Text Evidence Passages- the ability to read passages and find and cite text evidence to justify an answer is a VITAL skill for students, as it is emphasized time and time again in the Common Core State Standards. If you are looking for passages to practice this challenging, yet important skill, take a look at this packet of worksheets! It contains 5 original passages (3 fiction passages and 2 nonfiction passages).

Students read each passage, and then answer the 4-6 questions that accompany each passage. Most of the questions are written in multiple choice format. Students are also required to write a sentence to justify each answer, citing text evidence.

This resource also contains a poster (a color version and a blackline version) with 10 text evidence sentence starters. You can place the poster under your document camera and students can refer to it as they progress through the passages. You can also reduce the size and have students glue a copy in their interactive notebook! Some of the sentence starters include:
- According to the text...
- The author stated...
- In the _ paragraph (sentence), the author said...
- When the text said _, I inferred...
- I think __ because...

Answer keys are included.



This resource is also included in my TEXT EVIDENCE BUNDLE. {CLICK HERE.}
