The excerpt has been divided into brief sentences or phrases, each with a number preceding it. The teacher assigns 12 students a number and each reads when it is their turn. This creates a more dynamic read-aloud as the reading quickly moves from one part of the room to another. The text is followed by four comprehension questions. The document is created in word so buyers may renumber to create additional readers if desired.
