My monthly “text evidence” comprehension products have been very popular & have received many positive comments, so I am very excited to have finally put together this bundle for my customers' convenience at a discount price.Thanks so much for your interest in this product!
This fantastic product includes a total of 82 stories combined from the daily text evidence instructional materials I created for:
Each of the individual products contains a mixture of realistic fiction, animal stories and fantasy- some silly and some serious- with a few nonfiction pieces included-all short stories that feature familiar or high-interest topics, so your students are bound to make some self- to- text or text- to-text connections. Each passage is no more than one page long and is followed by six true/false statements. Students not only determine if the statements are true or false, but then go back into the story and color code/highlight (green or blue) the text that proves if the statement is true or false, as well as if the information is directly stated or if the reader needs to make an inference to determine if the statement is true or false. This type of active reading reflects the “close reading” necessary to comprehend text at the level expected by the Common Core State Standards.
The exact reading level of each passage wasn't calculated, however I actually think that the stories provide excellent material to be used during a “read aloud” guided lesson in which the teacher models locating text evidence using “think aloud” followed by a class discussion about why (particularly the inferred information) statements should be marked true or false. With more capable readers, the stories provide excellent independent practice.
