Fiction passage, "The Apple vs. the Peach", explains the election between two of America's favorite fruits. Students will pickup real ELECTION facts that are woven into the story. Perfect for the 2018 Congress election! This audiobook is brand-new.

Fiction passage, "Seal of the President", teaches a few presidential facts. Then, it explains how there has been a real seal living in the White House basement. It's been helping make presidential decisions since the 1960s. Students will pickup presidential facts that are also woven into the story.

Non-Fiction passage,"Obama's Inauguration Train Ride", offers great information about a special train trip before President Obama swore his oath in 2008. It has been updated to be more current (past tense).

They each include...

• Three comprehension written answer questions

• One self-reflection written answer question

• Teacher answer key for easy grading

• One FUN audiobook to improve literacy skills--the crazy sound effects will ENGAGE your students at a new level.


What LEVEL are these?

This pack is best recommended for early to mid 4th, but also for STRONG and or G/T 3rd. 5th graders will enjoy the stories, but the questions will make them laugh. These are perfect for practicing reading comprehension as we witness the next election. The rigor of the questions is not designed to make students sweat, but will supplement your Election Day and President themed learning.

The audiobooks do help younger reader levels enjoy them.

**Note: These passages are only written at ONE level and unfortunately do not include multiple levels for differentiation at this time.**




These three passages are from my 24 Fiction January , 24 Non-Fiction January Reading Comprehension, and November Fiction packs. If you've purchased any of these, please do not purchase this item or you will end up with a double. If you haven't yet purchased these, they will save you TONS of money vs. buying singles.

A note on the audiobooks: The Apple vs. the Peach is brand-new in 2018. However, the other two are from my older January packs. You will notice the difference in my own narration as I've improved over time. I have priced this pack accordingly to reflect the fact that one of them sounds stronger than the other two. Not to worry. Your students will still enjoy all three of them.
