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 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.)
The context of the reading is a group of international students introducing themselves to the school - which country they are from, which capital city they live in, and their nationalities. The context language is beyond simple because I know a lot of textbooks introduce countries and capitals right away before any real language development. So it uses "soy de" and "me llamo" and "la capital de" but that's about it.
No prep - just print and go!
