These have been such a help for me with my students. If you are looking for a way to teach the Common Core Reading Standards, expose students to informational text, realistic fiction, poetry, and plays and monitor student progress simultaneously, this document will be a huge help. This document includes short reading passages and questions that can be completed in just five minutes a day. A reading passage is included for each day of the school week. Use the document as a bell ringer as students first enter the classroom while attendance is taken. Use the document as an opening activity before starting a reading lesson. Or, send home the document for use as nightly homework. Click Here
