Many thanks for stopping by and taking a look at these free samples!
I am dedicated to creating products that help kids build confidence with early
literacy skills.
These Reading Comprehension Passages with Text-Based Questions are designed to
help students develop comprehension skills early in the process of learning to read.
This sample includes 3 reading comprehension passages. Each passage is presented
twice. In the first set, the passages are provided in a standard format. In the
second set, a color-coded crayon is provided in the answer box. Students use that
color to underline evidence in the text that supports each answer & also answer in
a standard format.
These activities support the following Common Core Standards:
ELA-Literacy.RL.1.1 - Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
ELA-Literacy.RL.K.1 -With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about
key details in a text.
If multiple choice questions are new to your kids, I recommend putting simple
questions in a multiple choice format during calendar time or other daily routines.
I like to give each student a strip of cardstock with A, B, and C written on it and
have them practice answering multiple choice questions by clipping a clothespin on
the correct answer. This is a fun and easy way for kids to develop confidence with
the multiple choice format. (See sample picture on page seven.)
I find that, with guided practice, kids quickly develop the skills they need to be
successful reading these passages and independently answering the multiple choice
questions.

I’d love to hear from you!
