These interactive, hands-on passages provide your students with fluency, comprehension, and written response practice. Students read the passage three times for fluency. They keep track of the amount of times they read the passage (optional). The consistent format of the passages guide your students through the process of looking back into the text to support their comprehension and understanding with text-based evidence. Students will have a blast using their crayons to highlight and look for evidence! Finally, students practice responding to the text through a Read & Respond activity. These response questions cover many big comprehension areas such as author’s purpose, inference, questioning, identifying the main/central idea, compare and contrast, details, reflection, and more!

These passages are great to use in a whole group setting, small group setting, RTI, intervention classrooms, or as center work or independent work within the classroom.

The passages are written within a second and third grade reading range, making them perfect for first grade stretch texts or first grade students reading above grade level, second and third grade independent reading, below-target third grade readers, at-risk fourth grade students, intervention students, and small group settings.

This special Rare Animals edition is perfect for science, tutoring, and great for spicing up your small group content in order to add some fun and interest into your literacy block!
