What makes these 6th Grade Reading Comprehension Passages so unique?


There are three differentiated versions of each passage, for a total of 96 passage options! These passages have been carefully leveled, and the levels are subtly marked with a small icon in the corner. All three levels of passages will use the same reading comprehension question page, making differentiation simple! No child will feel left out since the mark is only a small symbol.

Reading Comprehension Questions

Every passage includes a full page of comprehension questions. The first question on every page will help students activate their background knowledge about the passage’s topic. This question is followed by comprehension questions from the text (multiple choice and free response). Last, there is a deeper thinking question to encourage critical thinking and hit a variety of grade-level language arts standards.

BONUS! A half-page option is also included for the reading comprehension questions (not pictured). This is a GREAT option if you want to save on paper while printing!

Reading Fluency for 6th Grade

This resource makes recording reading fluency data simple for you. There are several options included for tracking reading fluency! Up to three reads of each passage can be recorded directly on the passage page.

These differentiated passages are excellent to use across multiple grade levels. Thank you for creating these resources that will save me countless hours finding ways to meet all the needs of my students.

Anne Lien

I really like the tracking sheet for the students and passages. Also, the differentiation makes it better for me when I work with students 1 on 1. They can all still read the same passage, but in different levels to stay consistent with everyone in the class. Thank you for this!!
