This product is designed to help kids develop reading comprehension skills and learn to answer text-based multiple choice questions.
Supports the following Kindergarten and First Grade standards:
Common Core Standard ELA-Literacy.RL.1.1 - Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
Common Core Standard 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 an easy, fun way for kids to develop confidence answering multiple choice questions.
Once kids are comfortable with the multiple choice format, discuss the first few passages with groups and demonstrate how to answer the simple text-based multiple choice questions. Some of the passages are similar to each other so you can use one passage to teach and the other to check each student's understanding during independent work.
I am finding that, with guided practice, kids quickly develop the skills they need to be successful reading these passages and independently answering the multiple choice questions.
These passages are based on common sight words. I also have kids find and highlight selected sight words.
Supports the following standards:
Common Core Standard ELA-Literacy.RF.1.3g - Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words (for beginning of year words).
Common Core Standard ELA-Literacy.RF.K.3c - Read common high-frequency words by sight.
This packet includes 20 reading passages with 3 multiple choice questions each. I hope you find them useful in helping your kids develop reading comprehension skills and prepare for state and local assessments.
Sincerely, Anne Garnder (NBCT, Literacy)
