Product Description
We’ve put a twist on Reading Comprehension by incorporating a Foldable Craft! No "drill and kill" here!

Click here to check out our video on our Veterans Day Reading Comprehension.

The students will read the informational text entitled “A Day of Honor”. The reading is followed by a comprehension assessment consisting of 8 multiple choice questions (that reflect the Common Core Standards), and a short response question that requires text based evidence. The multiple choice answers are recorded on the Answer Sheet provided and the short response is recorded on our Soldier Craftivity/Foldable template.

Next?....the real fun begins!…Students will color, cut and fold their way to adorable Soldiers that can be displayed around your classroom or used as a Veterans Day bulletin board or display.

The passage is perfect for close reading practice. All paragraphs are numbered for questions that require the student to "look back" and analyze a particular aspect of the text.


*An Informational Text Passage
*A multiple choice and short response assessment
*Student Answer Sheet
*Soldier Craftivity/Foldable (for short response)
*Teacher Answer Key
*Craftivity/Foldable Directions (easy as could be!... and no-prep required)

**Because we find "reading levels" to be quite subjective; this passage can be used for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Take a look at the text in the preview so that you can get an idea of its difficulty level.

With this product, your kiddos will gain invaluable experience with Common Core reading/questioning AND will be rewarded by designing their very own Soldier Craftivity.
