Product Description
Improve reading comprehension with these holiday sets of nonfiction text passages for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Presidents' Day. They are included in one-page and two-page versions. The longer passages are one page of informational text and one page of multiple choice comprehension questions with 3 answer choices. The matching mini-passage has one paragraph and 4 multiple choice comprehension questions with 4 answer choices, all on one page. All the questions are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests and include a variety of reading skills. Great for integrating reading and social studies and sneaking in some test prep during holiday crazy times!

These sets are also available individually, but you SAVE by buying the bundle!

The thumbnail and preview pictures show both a long and short passage from each holiday set so you can get an idea of the format and level of difficulty of the reading passages. You can also click on each title below to find out more about each individual set of reading passages. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.

Texts are mostly in the 4th-5th grade reading level range and score as "fairly easy to read" on readability indicators. I would recommend that most 3rd and some 4th grade teachers plan on doing these orally with students while modeling good reading strategies. Most 5th and 6th graders who are already familiar with this type of testing format should be able to complete these independently.

These passages have fun titles! As an added critical thinking BONUS, have students explain why they think the title of each reading passage was chosen.

I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.
