Do you own my 2nd Grade Close Reading Informational Text pack already? Then this differentiated extension pack is a GREAT add-on for you!
WHAT IS THIS?
This is meant to be used with my bestselling 2nd Grade Close Reading and Text Evidence Informational product, where all the passages fall within the Lexile level of 450-790 (the Common Core Standards expectation for 2nd grade). In this extension pack, the passages have been rewritten and they all fall within a lexile level of 390-580 which is perfect for your developing learners who are ready for some rich tasks.
Download the preview to see examples of how the text has been modified and lowered. You will also see a side-by-side comparison of the lexile levels and number of words for each passage in the original vs. the extension pack.
DIGITAL DISTANCE LEARNING OPTION INCLUDED
In addition to the traditional printable pack, the activities in this download can also be assigned via Google slides or Google Classroom, which makes it very versatile for digital distance learning.
To see a video overview of the digital version as well as instructions for assigning these passages using Google Docs or Google Classroom, check out these videos:
PART 1 – Video Overview of the Product Features
PART 2 – Instructions for Assigning via Google Drive (for users who do NOT have Google Classroom)
PART 3 – Instructions for Assigning via Google Classroom
This pack does not include the question pages. This extension only includes passages written at a lower level. It is to be used with the original product which is where you will find all of the question pages.
