These NO PREP Winter Sports reading passages with comprehension questions are perfect for your 1st and 2nd grade readers.

There are many ways! Teachers can assign students the passages digitally or use the printable version. They can be assigned within any digital platform. The students can do the comprehension questions after the reading. This can also be assigned.
