*These are the same themes and general ideas from my 3-6 grade monthly passages, just made at an easier level.*
This product includes 30 reading passages with questions. Each passage has a theme based on what "National Day" it is, like National Read a Book Day, National Talk Like a Pirate Day, National Chewing Gum Day and more! Kids are sure to love these fun and engaging reading passages.
Also included are 30 journal prompt cards.The theme of the cards match the theme of the daily reading passages.
You can use the reading passages and journal prompts as self-starts, during ELA center time, at the end of a lesson, as homework, or as part of your language arts daily routine. The options are endless!
There are also "Word of the Day" sheets that go along with the reading passages. Students will write the definition and part of speech for each word. Then they will write the word in a sentence, draw a picture and create an action for the word. The Word of the Day and Reading Comprehension sheets are both 1/2 sheets and can be printed back to back.
