Comprehension Passages

Time to dive into guided reading!  I like to meet with my lowest groups every day, which means we go through a lot of books!  I took one of my kiddos with me to pick out books for next week in an attempt for him to be more interested in guided reading for next week and we both realized we have read through almost all of his leveled books!
Now, we do have a Reading A-Z account for our school and a set of old guided reading books, so really we wouldn't "run out" of books for them!  However, I still wanted more for those lower groups to enhance those comprehension skills.

I created my first Reading Comprehension Passages pack!  This pack is all about animals.  It includes both fiction and non fiction passages with 5 questions for each passage.  All on one page.

Here I used the "Busy Bee" passage with my lowest group.  First, I read it to them while they point to the words.  Then, I have them read it.  This way those tricky words don't discourage them.

Once they finish we go through the questions.  My kiddos LOVE using highlighters and tell me how much they feel like they are in "8th grade".  We use highlighters to help us go back into the reading to find our answers.  This also helps them show how they found the answer instead of guessing.

I would LOVE to give one of these packs away!
