Text Evidence Passages {SPRING Edition}!

Maybe if I post something about spring it will get here sooner?  Probably not, but I can wish, right? πŸ™‚

I have finished my Text Based Evidence Reading Passages for Spring! I absolutely love the way these passages turned out.  I chose very timely, content-rich topics for you that you can use to integrate social studies and science into your reading instruction.  These passages are written within the second and third grade Lexile Level grade bands.  My high firsties are doing so well with them and I’m even using them with my on-target kids for close reading and stretch texts in our small groups.

For those of you who have not used my Fall or Winter editions, here is a glimpse at what the activity looks like:

There are 44 passages included in this pack. 22 high-interests topics contain both a fiction and a nonfiction paired passage.  This allows you to help your students make connections between the two genres.  

My kids LOVE these passages!  One little boy who is a reluctant reader, said “This is fun! Can you get more of these?”  (That just warmed my heart!!)

Here is an up-close look at the topics included in the pack:

  1. These are fantastic! I've been using your fall and winter packs with my high level first graders, and they have been perfect for my Guided Reading groups, and focusing on locating information within text. Heading to add these to my wish list for spring!!:) Thanks πŸ™‚

  2. Aaarrrrggghh!!!! I missed it! I use these for my instructional support block class. I have the middle group. To make it easy for myself, I've bagged up the three colors they'll need in ziplock a so they can just grab one as they come in. They have so much fun and I only use the two matching passages a week so they think it's a special treat!
