This are differentiated readings for the first days of April. The differentiated readings include all weekdays from April 1 - April 10. The readings include two articles for each topic. The lower reading level is between 4.0 and 4.5. The higher reading level is between 5.5 and 6.0.
April 1 - April Fool's Day
April 2 - Peanut Butter and Jelly Day
April 3 - Pony Express
April 6 - Twinkies
April 7 - Battle of Shiloh
April 8 - National Zoo Lovers Day
April 9 - Edward V
April 10 - Human Cannonball
Both articles on a topic have the same questions and answers. This saves a ton of work and makes differentiating easy. Students cannot easily tell who is reading at the higher level.
These differentiated readings are perfect for group or individual work. They can also be assigned as homework.
