**New for this file: I have included formatting to make this a Monday-Friday seat work resource or a Monday-Thursday homework resource. The other files will be updated soon so ALL will have this option!**
This file includes 10 weeks (10 Thanksgiving/Christmas/Holiday-themed passages) of close reading seat work/homework passages to get your students busy when they walk in your classroom door by completing meaningful classwork. In no time your students will be constructing meaningful and valuable responses. And best of all... each is Common Core aligned by standard!
Each day students will be required to complete a different task. By the end of the week, students will have a constructed response complete with a restated question, answer in their own words, evidence to support their answer, and an explanation that supports their answer/evidence.
Each passage for each week has a question for a specific Common Core standard. This file includes the following passages that align with the following standards.
★The Christmas Play: RL.3
★Turkey Hunting: RL.3
★Holiday Spirit & We've Got Spirit (Comparing two passages): RL.9
★The Classroom Visitor: W.3b & W.3e
★Veterans Day: RI.2
★The Bombing of Pearl Harbor: RI.3
★The Mayflower: RI.1 & RI.7
★The First Thanksgiving: RI.4
★Real Life Reindeer: RI.1
