Build comprehension using these 4 high-interest, nonfiction reading passages that feature one page of informational text and one page of multiple-choice comprehension questions. Topics include Pilgrim children, Pilgrim games, the story of the Mayflower, and the evolution of the holiday of Thanksgiving. The questions include a variety of reading skills and are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests, but with only 3 answer choices. Great for November reading!
The thumbnails and preview show the text and question format. The measured reading levels range from 3rd-5th and are "fairly easy to read" or "average" according to the readability indicators. I have 32 years of experience in preparing students for standardized reading testing and in studying these types of tests.
Here is what you get with this resource:
• Growing Up Pilgrim informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Mayflower Mania informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Pilgrim Playtime informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Thanksgiving Throwback informational text and questions (2 pages)
• Answer Key (1 page)
• TOU & Credits (1 page)
Growing Up Pilgrim, Pilgrim Playtime, and Mayflower Mania have readability levels in the 4th grade range. Thanksgiving Throwback is in the 5th grade range. I would recommend that 3rd grade teachers plan on doing these orally with students while modeling good reading strategies. Most 4th-6th graders who are already familiar with this type of testing format should be able to complete these independently.
As an added critical thinking BONUS, have students explain why they think the title of each reading passage was chosen.
I’d appreciate your purchase, your rating, and your feedback.
