Looking for Nonfiction Cold Comps/Reads/Passages
I have a file full of Cold Comps (passages that my students read and then answer comprehension questions at the end); however, I am lacking nonfiction, preferably boring ones. My team is hoping to prep our fifth graders for the state standardized assessments by coaching them through the most boring-of-boring passages so they can conquer anything they come upon when FCAT comes along next month.
I am hoping to find something that is about 1,000 words, nonfiction, with comprehension questions to follow that is on a 5th grade reading level.
If anybody knows where I can find something like this or has a file they are willing to send, I would greatly appreciate it! :]
