These are nonfiction reading passages about citizens. Because I have a citizen passage included in both my second grade and third grade bundles, this actually includes both. You get 2 passages at 3 levels each. There is also a vocabulary helper for each set of passages.
I've also included fluency trackers to record words per minute read each week. There are various levels and also a blank one in case a child reads above or below the rates given.
This can be used as homework or as a station during differentiated reading groups. Directions are at the top of each page. The first night students read the passage and circle words they aren't familiar with. The second night they reread the passage and answer the 5 comprehension questions. The third night they have someone time them for 1 minute and write at the bottom how many words per minute they can read.
These are designed so that all students can be reading about the topic at hand on their level. Vocabulary they will need to know for each science unit these correlate to are incorporated into the passage.

I also have a science passages bundle.
Math passages are the next thing on the to-do list.
