Summer Share and Prepare 5

I can't believe it's already time for the last Summer Share and Prepare Linky!

 Here's How it Works:

1. Link Up to a Blog Post about your Product - Please include the image above!  (Or directly to the product if you don't have a blog or are pressed for time)

2. Prepare for next year by reading about other products. Leave some love on other teacher's blogs!

 Summer flies by... I've already had 3 school events this week and am busy busy in my classroom. It got to a point where I had to think about what I was hoping to create this summer and think about some "nice to haves" and some "need to haves" so I would get done what I really need.

A "need to have" for me is reading passages with core questions. This is something that takes me a really long time to find or prepare for my students, and so often what I find is not really a good fit. I created 4 non-fiction passages with 6 core questions in the form of short response.

The passages can be used with high students in second grade all the way through readers in 5th grade, depending on your students' reading level. The core questions target a range of skills and promote deep thinking.

You can use the passages and core questions in whole group instruction, small/guided groups, or independent work.

Answer keys, instructional ideas and detailed information (word count, Lexile Range, and Fountas and Pinnell Levels) are included as well.

All you need to do it print it out, and you are set to go! I can't wait to have this pre-made for this year when we do biographies!
