VIPERS Reading Comprehension  short texts.

Based on a series of short 500 word texts that I found on TES.

I’ve added VIPERS style questioning and I use them for short intervention work or after school reading club.

1-5 are comprehension - text followed by questions.
6-11 are in a slightly different format. We read the text together and discuss then I give them 2 minutes to highlight or underline the Bronze, Silver and Gold words. We discuss them together and then move on to the rest of the questions.
