Comprehension: Checkbox Challenge Non-fiction ComprehensionQuick View

Comprehension: Checkbox Challenge Non-fiction Comprehension

I created this non-fiction reading comprehension pack 'Checkbox Challenge' to encourage struggling readers from Year 3 to Year 5 to practise their comprehension skills, using non-fiction text with age-appropriate content. The texts vary in length, but I have tried to keep the sentence structure and vocabulary simple. The passages are mostly written within the Years 3-5 Lexile bands. A word of caution however - the levels should only be used as a guideline - some of the more challenging topic vocabulary increases the Lexile level. (This type of vocabulary is topic specific and students would not be expected to know it). The pack contains 2 pages per topic, which can be printed back to back. • The first page introduces the text and questions. TEXT EVIDENCE • On the second page, students can highlight the piece of text which contains the answer. Some questions may require the students to look beyond the text to infer the answer. I have used this pack with my advanced Year 2s, although the basic premise is for intervention with older year groups. ✎ The texts help students develop skills in retrieving information from text. ✎ The check boxes allow those students, who struggle with handwriting and writing skills, to demonstrate their understanding and achieve success. ✎ These texts are suitable for independent work and ideal for shared and guided reading. They are also suitable for small group work where reading skills can be modelled, practised and developed. ****************************************************** CONTENT • Cover • 25 x Non-fiction Texts • 25 Picture Cards • TOU/Credits TEXTS • The Frog • The Penguin • The Polar Bear • The Bat • The Owl • The Spider • The Ant • The King of the Jungle • The Jellyfish • The Dinosaur • Hibernation • Pirates • Ancient Egyptians • The Pilgrims • Community Helpers • The Dentist • Neil Armstrong • Abraham Lincoln • The Planets • Earth Day • The Water Cycle • The Four Seasons • The Weather Forecast • The Journey of the Banana • The Teddy Bear PAGE COUNT: 82 ********************************************************** RELATED RESOURCES ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Comprehension
