Get your students moving, working together, and practicing their reading comprehension skills with this fall “around the room” reading activity for 4th and 5th graders!

*This resource is on sale until end of day 10/8 (EST).*

Note: This fall reading comprehension resource now includes digital versions for use with Google Slides. See pages 4-7 for the details and links.

Each year, it seems that my students need reading comprehension practice above and beyond the grade level skills that we study. They also need significant practice in nonfiction reading comprehension. I created this “Fall Reading Comprehension Activity” to meet this need.

About the Fall Reading Topics and Texts

Included in this resource are 12 nonfiction passages (paragraph length) on various fall topics. With each passage are 4 comprehension questions that can be answered using the text.

The texts in this resource are short, but rigorous. They are written at the top of the lexile range for 4th and 5th graders. The questions can be answered using the information in the text. ***The reading comprehension questions in this set are not meant to trick or challenge students.

Printable Reading Comprehension Practice: TWO Options for Use

Option 1: Around the Room Activity (recommended) – Get your students moving and reading by taping the texts and questions around the room. Pair or group your students in groups of three and have them go around the room. They will read the text with their group and then answer the questions. If you wish to pair your students and have more than 24 students, I recommend making two copies.

Option 2: Regular Printable Version – I have also included a regular printable version of the passages and questions (one passage and set of questions per page) as another option.

Digital Fall Reading Comprehension Practice: TWO Options for Use

The digital fall reading comprehension is designed for use with Google Slides.

There are two digital versions included:

Version 1 - Choice Board of Topics – From a digital menu, the students choose which topics they want to read and practice comprehension with. You can assign all of the topics or sets of 4 topics.

Version 2 - Single Text Version – Using this version, you can assign the texts and questions that you want each student to complete. To assign only a few of the slides, make a copy of your master. Rename the copy with the Topic Names or the Slide #s. Delete the slides you don’t want to assign.

Please see the video preview to see how the digital fall reading practice works.
