Product Description
Build comprehension in grades 4-6 using these 8 sets of seasonal and holiday-themed informational text passages. The format is one page of text and one page of multiple-choice questions with 3 answer choices. There are passages for the beginning of the school year, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, winter, February, spring, and summer. The questions cover a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests. Great for building confident readers, for interventions, and for test prep!

The majority of the reading levels measure in the 4th-5th grade range. The preview shows 4 assorted texts with questions so that you can get an idea of the format and level of difficulty of the texts. 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.

These passages could be used with 3rd graders with lots of teacher guidance. Some 4th grade teachers might need to do these orally with their 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.
