It is so important that we integrate reading comprehension with other subject areas. In this case, it's social studies! Each month is themed with important birthdays, holidays, and/or events. What better way to supplement your social studies curriculum than to give your students reading passages that discuss worldly themed events.
This reading packet is an excellent resource for getting students used to questioning in all areas: Key Ideas and Details, Craft and Structure, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas. Passages are informational and rigorous. All Lexile levels and word counts are included with the passages. All questions are Common Core aligned and labeled with the standard. This a perfect resource for homework, classwork, or a take-home packet. Enjoy!
Stay tuned and keep looking back for my April edition of "What Happened In..."!
