Product Description

I created this non-fiction reading comprehension pack 'Checkbox Challenge' to encourage struggling readers from second to fourth grades to practice 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 third to fifth grade 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. 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 first graders, although the basic premise is for intervention with older grades.

•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, practiced and developed. 

Please check the free preview – you will find a freebie text to download to help you decide if this pack is right for you and your students.

    These checkbox passages are fantastic for intervention, and very easy to use! They're also great to send home for extra practice - easy for parents to implement and understand!
