cts as well as during standardized testing.
At Evan-Moor, teachers, parents and homeschoolers will discover Reading Paired Text for grades one through six. The comprehension-based materials are research-based, focused and available in either a print or e-book teacher’s editions. Student workbooks are on hand as well and can be purchased individually or in groups. There is also a Reading Paired Text sampler that allows educators to try the paired text passages and follow-up activities beforehand to see if they suit their curriculum.
The accompanying paired text activities allow students to engage in oral reading discussions, answer comprehension questions, writing prompts and more. Reading Paired Text resources also include common core correlations as well as home-school connections.
Evan-Moor has been helping educate children for more than 35 years by providing teachers and parents with a wealth of educational resources that complement school curriculums. Through Reading Paired Texts, educators can build a firm literacy foundation for students. Reading and writing are the two subject areas that cross the curriculum, which is why they are paramount in a student’s education.
Beginning the Reading Paired Text series as early as first grade begins to foster that foundation. Students will read similar passages in both fiction and non-fiction. The passages target areas of interest and introduce the concept through a fiction story and a non-fiction article, giving students two different perspectives on the same concept. This practice develops critical reading and thinking skills as students as young as first grade begin to learn how to compare and contrast. Imagine how thorough these crucial skills develop as the students climb the educational ladder.
