These are nonfiction reading passages about science subjects. There is a first grade level passage, second grade level passage and a third grade level passage for each theme.
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.
living and nonliving
hibernation and migration
weathering and erosion
floods and droughts
storms (hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, and thunderstorms)
plant parts and life cycle
frog life cycle
butterfly life cycle
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.
These can also be purchased individually. I have many social studies topics, too. Check out the bundle here:
My next project will be making topics that go with math units!
