Rainbow readings are a fun way to tackle reading skills, grammar, and comprehension while helping students identify their mastery of specific skills! Rainbow readings are designed to incorporate common core skills - reading for meaning and also analyzing how grammar works, how it sets the tone, and how it is used in authentic context.
Each one has a one-page reading passage with color-coded highlighting challenges. There is also a page of comprehension questions and an instruction page for the teacher to explore options of how to incorporate this activity in the classroom.
This activity reviews ser and estar conjugation and differentiation. I stuck to present tense only, since that is when our students learn ser vs estar.
In this reading, a student is describing family members, but I kept the family roles pretty simple (immediate family) so it's not heavy on family vocabulary.
(This passage is the same as the choral reading passage for the same topic, but the coded reading tasks are different. The choral reading works more on speaking and pronunciation than the rainbow reading. The comprehension questions are the same.)
It includes PDF and DOC versions so you can edit as needed. It also includes a color-coded answer key that you can project for quick self-assessment.
No prep - just print and go!
