Reading comprehension passages that will make your students chuckle make morning work and homework so much more bearable. Most students know the feeling of disappointment over what is in (or not in) their lunch. Hopefully, most students do not know the feeling of escaping from school in the middle of the day to go across the street to their 106-year-old great grandmother’s apartment to make up for that missing dessert, however, that is the premise for this original story. Each section of this original story (based on actual events) includes common core aligned comprehension, inference, and vocabulary questions. This reading comprehension activity has been a huge success in my classroom. I have used it as morning work, classwork, and/or homework. Good luck, and remember...dessert is not just for the hungry.
