Description

Cinco de Mayo Reading Comprehension Passages with Mystery Pictures, provided in both DIGITAL and PRINT formats, are designed to engage students in analyzing text using close reading comprehension strategies.  This resource motivates students to persevere through the multi-draft reading process with the use of the mystery grid picture, making it a fun activity that students will ask for again and again!

★ Get this as part of the All Access Reading Comprehension Passages with Mystery Pictures!

This Cinco de Mayo set features three different texts about the holiday, including a story about a young person’s experience on Cinco de Mayo, an informational piece about how different countries celebrate, and the history of Cinco de Mayo.  Students will love learning about these Cinco de Mayo topics as they read the 3 texts: one fiction and two non-fiction.

These texts are DIFFERENTIATED at three reading levels, so all students will be appropriately challenged!  As they complete the close reading process, students will build comprehension by answering text-dependent questions. Here’s the fun part: their answers to the questions will help them “decode” and color the corresponding Cinco de Mayo themed mystery grid picture!

Graphic organizers and writing prompts are also included to enhance reading comprehension and can be used as you see fit!  Want to see for yourself? Check out the fun free passage in my Freebie Library to see how the text levels and questions can work for your classroom!

This activity is perfect for training students to read a text multiple times in order to truly understand it. By reading a text more than once, annotating it, and answering questions, students will learn to find and analyze:

  • Author’s purpose
  • Text structure
  • Text-based evidence
  • Central ideas

…And more!!
