Fall Passages - The perfect combination of reading and learning engagement! This learning pack includes 44 text based evidence passages for your students. 22 high interest topics are covered within the pack. Each topic includes a nonfiction passage and a related fiction passage so you can pair the passages and help your students make connections across both genres. With the introduction of the Common Core standards, comes a big shift in students being able to not only comprehend text but use and state evidence directly from the text to support their understanding. These passages allow your students to build and practice this skill in a fun, engaging manner!
These interactive, hands-on passages provide your students with fluency, comprehension, and written response practice. Students read the passage three times for fluency, keeping track of the amount of times they read the passage (optional). The consistent format of the passages guide your students through the process of looking back into the text to support their comprehension and understanding with text-based evidence. Students will have a blast using their crayons to go back into the text to highlight and look for evidence! Finally, students practice responding to the text through a Read & Response activity. These response questions cover many big comprehension areas such as author’s purpose, inference, visualizing, identifying the main/central idea, making connections, and more!
These passages are great to use in a whole group setting, small group setting, RTI, intervention classrooms, or as center work or independent work within the classroom.
The passages are written within the second and third grade reading range, making them perfect for first grade stretch texts or first grade students reading above grade level, second and third grade independent reading, below-target third grade readers, intervention students, and small group settings.
This edition contains topics that integrate many science and social studies concepts, saving you time and resources! Practicing fluency and comprehension has never been so fun for students – and easy for educators!
