This resource started with a problem; How do I teach comprehension strategies to young learners, while also using engaging and accessible texts? That's how this resource was born! It follows a scaffolded approach, using the 'I do, We do, and You do' strategy.

  • Question recording sheets for each reading passage (with the printed passage so students can locate their own evidence easily).

  • Vocabulary loading slides for each passage.


  • Hyperlinked menu.

  • Two options included: slides and questions with 'I do, we do, you do' labels, and slides without (so you can use them in any order).

Important: These passages are not levelled reading passages. They are designed to teach comprehension strategies, not decoding skills, so the focus is purely on the strategy. Each passage will feature language that may vary in difficulty. For this reason, 'Vocabulary Loading' slides have been provided for each passage. The passages are also intended to be read with the students, however, you could also provide them to your stronger readers to read independently.


It is also important to note that this is an Australian resource, so does not feature American spelling.
