PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I originally created this product for my own classroom. I needed a way to assess my students’ understanding of text features other than by observation, and I wanted the assessment to tie in to our science and social studies curriculum. Thus, this product was born. The kids have fun using different colors to identify the different text features, and it provides great work samples for me.

The average Lexile level of the 8 nonfiction passages in this product is 820L (equivalent to a GRL of Q or higher). This product is geared toward third through fifth graders, although it is much more rigorous when used in the lower grades. I use these exact passages with my second graders. They are perfect for shared reading as a class or for buddy reading.

Passage Topics:
States of Matter
Phases of the Moon
Sharks
Underground Railroad
How Money is Made
Clouds
Water
Needs and Wants / Goods and Services

The first page in this document is called “Comprehension Check.” These comprehension questions can be used with ANY of the passages included in this product, or really any nonfiction text! Just choose the passage you are going to use, then copy the Comprehension Check onto the back of the chosen passage. You will then have a two-sided nonfiction assessment that will assess text feature identification as well as reading comprehension.
