Free!!! The vocabulary handouts were formulated from the beautifully written book Duke Ellington by Andrea Davis Pinkney. I then downloaded a biography off of PBS kids and created a 2 page test to go along with it. It is a great cold read to either teach text evidence (highlighting skills) or practice for standardized tests.
