These 10 French reading passages are the perfect way to help your beginning students read more. Each holiday-themed reading comprehension activity includes 3 versions of the student question sheets. Cette ressource contient 10 compréhensions de lecture.

This PDF now has an interactive layer so you can assign it to your students online. * I've removed answer keys and added text boxes so students can type right on this document. This is great for distance learning! Find it by clicking "Open Easel Activity" after you purchase this PDF.

*Students will access this version via Google Classroom OR a Google email account.

These passages are intended for first or second year students. Grade level will vary based on when students began studying French. French-only questions are appropriate for younger French immersion students who are beginning to read paragraphs. See the preview to determine if the grade level is appropriate for your students.

Each reading passage is the same, but the questions vary based on the version you choose. The first version you will always see has short answer English questions and students can answer in English or French. These questions will be the easiest for students who need more support. The second version has the same style of questions, however, the questions are in French and students are directed to answer in French. These are best for your more-advanced learners. The third version has multiple choice questions, and occasionally, students will locate specific information in the text (such as adjectives, conjugated verbs, or specific vocabulary). These are great for any level, as the questions are a bit different than the short answer versions.

You can choose all one version for a class, but I like to use different versions based on student levels so that differentiation is super-easy! You can always print 2 versions back-to-back and let students choose their own activity.

This pack includes the following holidays:




-New Year's

-Valentine's Day

-St. Patrick's Day


-Earth Day

-Mother's Day

-National holiday (not country specific)

If you are interested in a reading activity for a holiday not included on this list, you can email me at and I'll consider it for a future version. :)

This packet contains holiday-themed reading passages that are a perfect complement to my Christmas pack, Easter pack, Thanksgiving pack, Valentine's Day pack, or Halloween pack.
