Kids LOVE holiday themed stories, and they love to color, so I came up with a the perfect combination. They can read the story and color the picture according to the correct reading comprehension answer! These would be great to use as morning work, homework, classwork, or for your guided reading groups.
This product is part of a bundle. Check it out before you buy this; you might like it better:)

MINI-Bundle of 4 stories per holiday (44 total stories in mini-bundle vs 111 stories in whole bundle) available here:
All 10 stories are Winter-related (no mention of Christmas for your kiddos who don't celebrate Christmas) and fictional. Each story has accompanying who/what/when/where/why/which questions that the kids need to answer in order to color the picture correctly.

I have always introduced the process of asking and answering questions by showing my class the "wh" brothers. Be sure to introduce them as two young boys (brothers) who are very curious and are always asking questions like: who, when, when, where, and why. Eventually, the kids begin to use this strategy of asking the "WH" brother questions to themselves while they read a book.
I also made the stories easy enough to read so that the kids can actually point to, underline, or circle the answer in the story. This teaches kids NOT to guess since the answer will be in the story.
Included in the whole year packet is the following:
-"WH" Brothers Anchor Chart
-4 monthly themed stories with “WH” questions (who/what/when/where/why) FOR EACH OF THE 12 MONTHS OF THE YEAR
-Total of 48 comprehension stories each with 5 “wh” questions
-Each story has a picture to match the story, too.
You can also purchase each month of the bundle mentioned above separately here:
A few good uses for this packet would be: small guided group work, homework, reading centers, classwork, and morning work. I have used this in the past for my guided reading groups, as I can differentiate within my groups/kids.
