12 Differentiated Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Coloring Pages For the Entire Year! VOLUME THREE. Start using this resource in January for your winter activities and then continue using it all year long. Or jump in part way through the year with Memorial Day or another holiday/season.

Each of the 12 nonfiction reading passage comes in 3 levels for instant differentiation (for grades 3-8).

A lot of teachers in 2nd grade like these as well - you will find that I have included sample pages in the preview - please see those to determine if the reading levels are a good fit for your students. (If you require easier reading passages, you may find this resource to be more suitable, Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Passages and Coloring Pages for Grade 2.)

This volume is included in my Reading Comprehension BUNDLE

Together Art with Jenny K. and Brain Waves Instruction like to put the ART in Language Arts. That is why we have teamed up to bring you a fun, creative and innovative way to use nonfiction reading passages as you support 21st century skills in your classroom all year long!

Other reading comprehension volumes available (each volume covers different holidays, has different images and also cover different reading strategies each month).

Volume 1

Volume 2

Volume 4

These coloring pages aren’t your standard color by answer pages. The final artwork will be as unique as the student that created it.

Art integration in 1-2-3

Students will…

1. Read the nonfiction passages.

2. Answer the questions.

3. Turn the answers into unique art!

These activities are perfect to use when preparing for:

• Homework assignments

This resource will complement any reading instruction or holiday celebration you are planning for your classroom.

Each passage targets a critical reading comprehension skill. Each artwork coordinates with the reading passages for different holidays and seasons of the year. You can use them in succession or pull them out of order and use them in a way that works best of you. Start using this no prep resource any time of the year and use it all year long!
