Product Description
As we celebrate the new year, incorporate traditions and fun facts about New Year's Eve and New Year's Day from around the world into your reading or language lessons (or speech/language therapy sessions!) For nonreaders, this can also be used as a great listening comprehension activity!

This download includes 22 short passages discussing New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day traditions around the world with 2-5 corresponding critical thinking questions per passage.

✨ Students can read passages independently (silently or aloud) or passages can be read aloud by teacher or therapist. Questions require students to use skills ranging from simple recall, comparing, contrasting, making personal connections to deciphering vocabulary in context, drawing conclusions, making inferences, giving opinions, and justifying responses with evidence. A whole range of critical thinking skills can be applied.

It also includes:
► QR codes that link to entertaining videos related to the passages. All you need to scan the codes is
one of the many free QR reader apps. There are 21 videos in all.
► a writing prompt so students can respond to read material in writing
► a VENN diagram so students can compare and contrast traditions
► 2 EET activities to help students organize their thoughts about New Year traditions
► a writing activity that requires students to tell what they learned by expressing facts they learned
and opinions they formed
► an activity for differentiating between New Year facts versus opinions

Passages can be used with individual students, for partner reading, or for small group or whole class discussion.

✨ For non readers, an adult should read the cards and the students can respond.
