Quick Cloze Passages for Boosting Comprehension (Grades 2-3)

Help students become active participants in the reading process with engaging, fill-in-the-blank, fiction and nonfiction passages. Students tap prior knowledge, use context clues, and sharpen critical thinking skills to fill in the missing words from a companion list. Includes Flesch-Kincaid readability levels to help teachers choose passages that best meet students’ needs. Flexible and easy to use for independent practice, small groups, or homework. Great for assessment and test prep!
How to use this product: Once students have gotten the hang of cloze passages, you can also create your own using other classroom materials, such as picture books, science texts, and social studies passages. Photocopy the passage once and use correction fluid to create blank spaces. Include a word list of the missing words in alphabetical order!
