I am sure you have seen Kristin and Katie's (aka- Little Red's Schoolhouse) simply ADORABLE clipart on TpT right...
I L-O-V-E their clipart and have several sets... You can see them in many of my products like my telling time math workstations and hall hunts (1st grade hunt, 2nd grade hunt), lovely linking verbs hunt, and year long writing portfolio.
And, as much as I love their clipart, they have added something that I *might* love even more! These two fab ladies have just created some reading comprehension sets that feature similarly themed reading passages with comprehension questions for each passage.
As soon as I saw these in my "New Products" e-mail, I knew I had to check them out. I am always looking for engaging passages that can assess comprehension and these are just the thing!
First of all, I love the theme of each pack...
*Americana (full of American history, symbols, and people!)
*wonders and mysteries (which is my favorite... bigfoot! bermuda triangle! loch ness monster!... my kiddos will LOVE it!)
*holidays around the world (featuring all sorts of interesting holidays from many countries)
*amazing people (this is one of my favs too... my kiddos will love it when we study biographies during our wax museum!)
*animals (who wouldn't love this one?!)
*a world of color
*science and nature (this one is full of interesting topics!)
You can get these amazing files in a bundle too for $16 off!!! Click the pic below for more info! If you had all of these, you'd have enough for almost one for every day of school... which would be such a great way to practice non-fiction reading!!!!!
Now I want to show you some of the pages from my favorite pack- the wonders/mysteries... you can click each pic to see it a bit bigger.
I was so excited to see this story about Hachiko! We read this book last year and loved it, so I know my students will enjoy seeing this favorite character in a comprehension check!
Love this one about the ghost ship the Mary Celeste. I have a story about this on a CD in my listening center and it's always an intriguing favorite for them!
One more... because which boy would not love to read and show off their comprehension on a story about BIGFOOT???
And these are just three of the passages from the Wonders/Mysteries pack.
In the foods pack, there are passages about traditional birthday foods from around the world, carnivorous plants, how cotton candy is made, and more! Each pack also has a printable "Reading Dictionary" which contains words from the different texts and is like a glossary for that specific pack!
The variety of skills in each pack is great, answer keys are included, the format is perfectly organized and understandable for students... and the did I mention that these are Common Core aligned?! Check it out!
But wait... there's more... you can win ALL of their comprehension packs!!!!!!!!
