DRAMA READING COMPREHENSION PASSAGES WITH QUESTIONS
(ONE OF MY BEST SELLING PRODUCTS!!!)
I created these passages for my 4th and 5th grade students to practice common reading skills. Student's can have read and act out a play. There are 5 plays included in this packet, each drama has 5 comprehension questions. The answer key is included at the end of the presentation.
The following reading skills are covered in the passages:
Inference, Vocabulary, Text evidence ,Theme, Character Analysis, Turning point &
Each of the plays has a theme for the reader to identify through the problem and major events. I picked themes that are life lessons common for elementary age students. The themes in this play are:
*Persistence pays off
*Stand up for yourself
*Being the Bigger Person is Important
*Be Kind to Others
