Product Description
This resource provides the perfect practice for main idea. The passages are engaging and winter-themed. For every fiction text, there is a related nonfiction text.

Many options are provided for each text to allow for differentiation in the classroom. Utilize the same text for your students, but differentiate by the amount of support and tasks you have students work on related to the text.

In addition to this resource getting an update, stacked questions were added. Stacked questions are two part questions- Part A and Part B. Part A asks a questions about the theme, main idea, setting, characters, academic word choice, etc. Whereas Part B asks students to find the best excerpt/excerpts that provide evidence for the selected answer to Part A. These questions will challenge your students to fully comprehend the text, critically think about the questions being asked, and analyze the answer choices.
