PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Using Paired Texts to Compare and Contrast

Reading two texts and comparing their similarities and differences is a difficult skill for many students. This pack of passages was made to help my students conquer complex texts, while also enjoying read alouds. This pack includes five nonfiction passages. The passages should be paired with a fiction children's book on the same topic. (Suggestions are given, but the books are NOT included in this pack. You must purchase the children's books or rent them from your library.) Response questions and compare/contrast questions are also included.

See how I used them in my classroom for more pictures!

Included:
Book Suggestions
5 Nonfiction Passages: Service Dogs, Worms, Apple Pie, Bumblebees & Deforestation.
5 Response to Reading comprehension questions - one per passage
5 Compare the Texts compare/contrast questions - one per passage
