6 Question Worksheets

This resource consists of one passage titled “Birthday Surprise” with six differentiated question worksheets. There are 6 different worksheets: (Multiple-Choice, Short Answer, and Short Response) to help you differentiate for students of ALL levels. Three of the worksheets require students to use evidence/details from the passage to support ideas. Worksheets come in different formats. ANSWER KEYS for all worksheets are included!

☆☆☆Level Complexity:

Question Worksheets range from basic comprehension questions (lower-level)
to inferential questions (higher-level).

ALL Questions Worksheets consist of the same passage!

This can be used as a quiz, test, formative assessment, homework assignment, classwork assignment, or can even be used during guided practice! A great idea would be to see how well students perform with the basic comprehension questions, and if they do well on that, you can challenge them further by giving them the inferential thinking question worksheets!

☆☆☆ 4 Bulletin Board Task Display Pages
Included in this resource are four Bulletin Board Task Display Pages that can be used to display your students' work. Bulletin Board Task Display Pages are beautifully created and visually pleasing. These Bulletin Board Task Display Pages will improve the overall appearance of your classroom bulletin boards. Please note, the Bulletin Board Task Display Pages should be printed on gloss or photo copy paper for optimal quality and shine.

☆☆☆ 2 Rubrics (Visually pleasing as well!)
Finally, this resource includes two student-friendly rubrics to evaluate students’ responses - Easy to use! One Rubric is a 4-point score Rubric used to score Short Answer Questions and one Rubric is a 2-point score Rubric used to score the Short Response question.

***You have everything you need to score your students’ responses, and immediately display on bulletin boards with the Bulletin Board Task Display Pages and Rubrics! Absolutely no preparation needed! - YAY!
