These reading passages will help you to see skills your readers may struggle with. These passages are long enough for independent work, but you can also use in a small group setting. I have used these passages in my classroom and with tutoring students, summer school and to review for major tests. With the digital version you can use for distance learning, on classroom computers, or for homeschool.
