What is included?
★ Reading Comprehension Passages: There are 24 full-page passages with 3 Levels of Differentiation- Total of 72 Passages. There are 2 passages per Common Core Standard with the standard written on the page. (Some standards have paired text.)
★ Dyslexia Version: All of the passages have a dyslexia-friendly font. This is ideal for differentiating for your Dyslexic learners. The font is called Open Dyslexic. Although there is no research behind it as far as fluency or comprehension, I include it for a preference. Some kids will automatically choose it and say they can read it better. My thought is this, if it can help one child, then it is a win! There are actual books written in the font, like the Hank series by Henry Winkler. Interesting!
★ Step 1 Questions- Multiple Choice: For each passage, there are multiple choice questions in the form of a worksheet or task cards. They are perfect for centers, group work or homework to get familiar with the text prior to the more challenging questions.
★ Step 2 Questions- Open-Ended: There are 10 questions per passage that work for all 3 reading levels. The last question is a text-dependent analysis prompt. There are 2 Formats of Open-Ended Questions. There is a 2-page version with lines and a 1-page version without lines (These are great for writing answers on a separate piece of paper or in a notebook.)
★ Teacher Version: This version includes all 3 student versions, teacher notes, and answer keys. (249 pages)
★ 3 Student Versions: There are 3 levels of passages. For each level, there is a student PDF file that can be sent to the students. The questions are included, but not the answer key.
★ Answer Keys: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE TEACHER EDITION! ANSWER KEYS AREN’T INCLUDED IN THE STUDENT LEVELED FILES. For each open-ended answer key, teachers will know which questions are directly related to the standard. The answers that are bold-faced are related to the standard.
