Reading Practice!

Please use the Reading Passage Practice to help you practice and prepare for the upcoming Reading SOL! There are many interactive reading passages available to use!

Also, don’t forget that the VDOE has great practice for the SOLs as well! (Scroll and find Reading, Math, and Virginia Studies to practice for the SOL. There is also a great tool for parents to use, which gives the answers and explains why the answer choice is correct. Use this to review difficult skills.)
