LitPairs, Paired Short Literature Texts

Grades 1–5
Designed for explicit, small group guided reading with an emphasis on critical analysis and synthesizing across texts.

These resources offer a dynamic and innovative set of leveled, paired texts and accompanying lesson plans to develop students’ capacity for applying more rigorous 21st century literacy standards.

Students closely read short, challenging texts and then compare, contrast and synthesize information across themed texts.

Each LitPairs book includes 18 paired, leveled literature texts. Each of the 9 themed pairs includes a Common Core-based lesson plan booklet.

Also available in Spanish.
