I use these texts to give my emerging readers complex and authentic texts to read and help them grow their fluency and comprehension!
Excellent resource! Very aligned with the standards we use to drive instruction. The students have enjoyed the variety of learning experiences from this set of activities. Thanks so much!

I love this resource so much I have to go back and buy the bundle. Many of my students are below grade level in reading. The differentiated passages were great practice for my close reading mini lessons. Students find the passages engaging and it really helped them to practice the skill of sequencing with a more accessible text.

I used this during intervention block and to work on fluency with my students. This is wonderful for small group since it is already differentiated for you. I was able to use the higher level for my more advanced students this year. Wonderful resource to use.

Thank you for such a great center activity. These short, but interesting stories helped my students practice so many important reading skills. I like that they were differentiated so I could choose the story/questions that were appropriate for each group. Thank you for sharing.

My students loved this resource for their reading homework! They were engaged in the resource and had no trouble completing it on their own. They found the passages engaging. It didn’t take much time to prepare this resource. I would advice printing it out and putting it in a notebook for easy organization. I LOVE how it is already differentiated for me. I will be buying the rest of these resources to use next year!
