⭐️These 12 printable and digital certified Lexile measured reading comprehension passages with standard-based questions are perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing 2nd grade & 3rd-grade point of view skills. Aligned to CCSS RL2.6 & RL3.6, students learn to acknowledge differences in the POV of characters and distinguish the characters’ points of view from the narrator of the text.
⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this packet is still perfect for teaching 2nd grade and 3rd-grade point of view skills. Aligns with state-specific standards like TEKS and VA SOL.
⭐️Includes standard based questions, anchor charts, and two skills-focused test passages. Certified Lexile measured close reading comprehension texts are varied within the second and third-grade band.
⭐️The printable PDF and digital versions are both included with this product for classroom and distance learning needs. The digital version is compatible with Google Drive and Google Slides and can be downloaded from Google Slides into PowerPoint.
*This digital version saves paper, but still requires teachers to correct student responses.
