Have you ever wondered how far Mary and Joseph travelled on the donkey? Or why Bethlehem was so busy at the time of Jesus birth? Or what myrrh actually is?
Your students will find out these and more through these fascinating stories from the Nativity. From Mary and Joseph to the shepherds and wise men, these accounts paint the picture of what life must have been like in Nazareth and Bethlehem at this time.
Each passage comes with a series of questions that will test students' comprehension skills through fact retrieval, word meaning and inference and deduction.
ALSO AVAILABLE FOR EASTER READING: CHARACTERS OF THE CROSS

A bit about me:
Before teaching, I was a journalist. I still work as a freelance writer, and like nothing more than writing engaging texts to challenge and inspire children and young people. I choose subjects that may not be on the curriculum but are of great importance for students to know about.
Everything I write has been comprehensively researched from a number of sources and been written by myself. No plagiarism here! This is all original material. My questions are pitched at a high level, but with a bit of patience and persistence (and some adult help if necessary) most students will have great fun as they learn, especially as the penny drops.
Your students will benefit from my reading comprehensions in guided reading, close reading, and lessons right across the curriculum. The comprehensions are closely aligned with Common Core, testing and developing skills in summarising, recall, inference, word meaning and contextual understanding.
I am aware of the impact of printed resources on our environment so try to condense my reading activities into as compact a space as possible. Hopefully this will help you save time in printing, and keep the bills down!
