Yes! Each grade level has completely different passages and vocabulary. Some of the formats for the activities are similar across grade levels, but the content is 100% original.

About the Digital Reading Bundles:

  1. These are completely digital and were made for Google Slides but can be used in lots of other learning platforms (see FAQ #3)
  2. Each unit has 2 or more passages with vocabulary, comprehension, and reading strategy slides. Many of the slides include beautiful art or images, so they are visually appealing.
  3. Every slide (except the passages) is interactive and students drag and drop objects to show their answers.
  4. I love to use these as a review to practice reading concepts. They can be used for independent work, with partners, for centers, and for test prep. Since each unit includes 2 complete mini-units, you could use one now and save the second one as a spiral review later.

About the Reading Bundles:

  2. The Google Slides have text boxes or moveable pieces to show answers. The Google Forms™ activities are multiple choice and self-grading. These can also be used in many learning platforms (see FAQ #3).
  3. Most units include passages, task cards, graphics organizers, and activities.
  4. I love to use these to teach and to review reading concepts. There are enough passages here to scaffold. You can use one for a whole class lesson, several as practice, and save one for assessment or spiral review.
  5. They can be used as independent work, with small groups/partners, for centers, and for test prep.
