Anyone else always looking for age-appropriate paragraphs for your upper elementary students that target both comprehension and vocabulary goals? This resource contains 40 worksheets with fun, non-fiction passages to work on comprehension, recall, and vocabulary. Each passage contains a real, intriguing story about a common item (fun foods, animals, sports, holidays, and more). First there is a background knowledge prompt for the student to try to think of something that they already know about the topic. Each story is followed by six questions. Three questions for each story are comprehension questions that require recalling information from the text. Two questions from each story are vocabulary questions about a word presented in context within the story (what does the word mean, provide an antonym for the given word or make a new sentence with the target word). The last question on each card is a creative prompt that requires the student to either brainstorm, imagine, describe, or share their opinion on a topic related to the theme of the card.

There are a total of 40 passages. The targeted vocabulary words are Tier 2. There is no prep required (other than printing or pulling up on a screen if you are currently doing teletherapy - I just printed it and put it in page protectors in a binder so I could easily re-use it with many students). The stories and prompts are interesting to kids and teens and can easily create further discussion. This resource is a fun, engaging, and easy-prep activity for students working on vocabulary and comprehension goals.
