Short, high-interest reading passages can be a great way to start the school day or to fill in the gaps as needed. This teacher resource offers over 150 reading warm-ups. Each 10-minute warm-up consists of a nonfiction or fiction passage and 3 comprehension questions designed to assess students’ understanding of the reading material.
Each set of passages is divided into groups that focus on specific writing genres and/or areas of interest:
- American History
- Current Events
- Fairy Tales and Folklore
- Historical Fiction
- Contemporary Realistic Fiction
In addition, the passages are leveled to meet your students’ various reading abilities. These levels are discretely listed in a table at the back of the book, ensuring that no attention is called to the level of passage each student is given. The three levels are as follows:
- below grade level
- at grade level
- above grade level
A comprehensive answer key is included. This resource is 176 pages in all.
