In an ideal world, students would always get to “practice reading” with self-selected independent reading texts. But, we all know that ideal isn’t always possible, and in some instances, we need to assign students specific passages and comprehension questions to help them practice the reading skills you're teaching.

If your students are focusing on identifying the theme of a story, these reading passages and comprehension questions can help!

What's Included?

5 Reading Passages each with a graphic organizer and comprehension questions. Each passage is short, yet engaging, and students will follow the same four-step process when reading each text.

  • Step 1: Read the Passage
  • Step 2: Think About the Passage
  • Step 3: Organize Your Thinking
  • Step 4: Respond to the Text

The goal with these texts is to give students an authentic reading experience where they have the time and space to critically think about the text and apply key reading skills.
