Differentiated Reading Comprehension Passages



These Differentiated Reading Comprehension Passages and questions are a perfect tool to use to help students practice their comprehension. There are different topics covered in the passages. Each topic comes with a fiction set and a nonfiction set of comprehension passages. There will be 3 fiction texts for each topic and 3 nonfiction texts for each topic.

*There are now digital components included in these resources. The passages are now created in Google Slides.

**Please read- Since these are differentiated passages and intended to be assigned to different students, please do not share entire set of slides with students. If you need help learning how to share only certain slides with students, please read my Google Classroom blog post.**

Each seasonal reading passage topic has nonfiction and fiction passages. There are three levels for each topic, too: beginning, growing, and advanced readers.

Three levels of text:

  • Beginning readers- simple sentences and simple vocabulary
  • Growing readers- More complex sentences with tougher words to decode
  • Advanced readers- Complex sentence structures, longer sentences, and harder vocabulary words
