Part 4 is coming soon! So it will be included in this bundle in November 2019. If you have the bundle, you will get access to it for FREE!
It will also include passages on Reindeers, Christmas Beetles and Christmas Trees.
Each reading task card will get the students to delve deeper into the text by reading and responding directly to the questions about the text.
I created these for reading & comprehension fluency. These cards are non-fictional passages about how different countries celebrate Christmas. There are six cards in total with two levels. Level 1 is of grades 1-3 reading level and level 2 is of K-1 reading level. You may choose the set that you want to print out, laminate and reuse. I use the easier sets with my ESL students. Reading comprehension is one of the most important skills teachers can impart to their students. Help students develop critical thinking skills with this set.
What's included (in EACH PDF):
- 6 passage cards for level 1 (Grades 2-3) with questions for responding to the text.
- 6 passage cards for level 2 (Grades K-1) with questions for responding to the text.
- 3 response sheets
- 2 independent comprehension readers (each level) and questions to follow.
Skills these cards address are:
- identifying details
- understanding content
- expanding vocabulary
- drawing conclusions
How to use these cards:
There are many options upon using these cards and they are all depending on preferences. In literacy centres, you could print, laminate and instruct students to highlight the key evidence from the text, as well as look for meanings in new vocabulary.
You could also print out the black and white versions and give each student a different text to work on. Following this, they could summarize their text in writing or they could orally present it to the class.
