My students do not want to read back through a reading passage. We do these weekly reading passages as a way to get students to get into the habit of rereading parts of a passage on a reading test, as well as learning to skim passages for the information they are looking for, and answering in complete sentences.
There is a reading passage and five days of questions about the passage included for use throughout one week. The topics may be familiar or unfamiliar to students. During state reading tests students often read passages about topics that are unfamiliar to them, so these will help them learn different strategies.
This passage is all about Umbrellas! Did you know that National Umbrella Day is celebrated on February 10th each year?
You can also buy this in the bundle of four February weekly reading passages!
