Christmas Reading Passages with Comprehension Questions
Engage your students in reading workshop this December with this set of Christmas passages and comprehension questions! This is a fantastic way for your students to review reading strategies for nonfiction, functional text, fiction, and poetry! Use for Christmas reading activities before and after winter break or save for a festive end-of-year review activity.
Each text includes 8 standards-based questions (TEI-like items, multiple-choice, and open response).
nonfiction text: "Christmas Plants"
functional text: Mall Website Page
fiction: "Mystery at the Market"
poem: E. E. Cumming's "little tree"
These passages work well for reading groups, independent practice, homework assignments, test prep, and even assessment. They are intended to provide rigorous practice; some students may benefit from having small group support.
