Description: Contains 5 winter-themed paragraphs for working on reading comprehension, written expression, and expressive language skills. Practice identifying the text purpose, stating the main idea, using the main idea to generate multiple examples of introduction/topic and conclusion sentences, summarizing, answering critical-thinking questions (why, how do you know), finding the evidence/support for a statement in the text, and defining tier two vocabulary words or determine their meaning from context clues. In addition to questions and prompts to find the evidence, I have included answers for purpose and main idea and have also included multiple examples of good introduction/conclusion sentences. Topics include: Icicles (to inform) Ice fishing (to tell steps in a sequence) Figure skates vs. hockey skates (to compare/contrast) Winter coat advertisement (to persuade) Arctic fox (to present a problem and solution)
