Product Description
We LOVE to celebrate holidays in our classroom, but it can be a struggle to balance celebration time with education time! That's why I created this set of holiday-themed leveled passages and reading response tasks. We get to engage in some fun holiday learning and celebrating while still sneaking in some really valuable reading, writing, and critical thinking skills!

Here’s what you’ll get in this packet:

FOUR DIFFERENT LEVELS of text about the history and traditions of Cinco de Mayo so children within your classroom can have a shared experience with close reading content, at a readability level suitable for their independent reading comprehension. Leveled to 10th grade, 8th grade, 6th grade, and 4th-grade readability, using Flesch-Kincaid grade level equivalents *LEVELS ARE MARKED USING A CODE IN THE LOWER CORNER OF EACH PAGE*

Comprehension questions to complete post-reading (includes answer key).

Choice menu with nine options (including the comprehension questions) related to the texts. Each option is based on the three highest levels of Bloom’s taxonomy (analyze, evaluate, and create).

Each task in the menu also has a corresponding task card for ease of implementation. This allows you to easily use the tasks in literacy stations or centers if desired.

Accompanying activity sheets with detailed instructions for each of the nine menu/task card options.

Answer keys and a general product rubric to evaluate products students create during the unit.

Link to a curated Pinterest board that you and your students can access if you're looking for resources related to the activities in this packet.

Teacher's Notes/Suggestions for Implementation


*Please note, three of the activities require access to informational books or the internet to complete.
