Christmas is just around the corner....and such a fun and exciting time of year! These printable, reading comprehension activities are based on my best selling Cause and Effects Reading Comprehension Activities. With the fun theme of Christmas, the children are able to focus on the comprehension skills of identifying causes and effects, together with creating their own possible causes for stated effects. So, two different reading comprehension games in one thematic packet!
There are 28 matching cause and effect cards for reading and matching. These are color-coded to show differentiation in the text. The activity which involves identifying your own cause has 16 cards. I like to copy and laminate the cards so that the kids can write directly on the cards with dry erase felt markers over and over again.
I have used this activity with 3rd and 5th grade guided reading groups and as literacy centers activities. They align with the CCSS ELA standards.
Please feel free to let me know your thoughts on this product so that I may constantly be improving my work for you.
Happy, Happy Holidays!!
