***Feedback from teachers***
"My students absolutely loved these Halloween passages! They were great to compare and contrast 2 passages on the same subject. Can't wait to try the Thanksgiving passages!"
"This was a great pack. Lots of options and differentiation plus the coloring pages made it fun. More importantly in the community I teach in the message is Halloween is evil and is the birthday of the devil so it was nice and important for them to read informational text about Halloween. Thanks for your hard work."
"My kids really enjoyed learning about the history of Halloween, as well as getting to color the mystery pictures. I loved that there were three different levels for each text, so all students were able to access the same information and participate in class discussions about each story. Thanks!"

Do you teach in grades 3-6? Do your students groan at the thought of reading a passage more than once? Do they just answer comprehension questions without looking back in the text? Well, no more!

These comprehension passages make students WANT to reread a text and even work hard to find the correct answer so that they will be able to color their mystery picture correctly. Best of all, it's self-checking so you can scan quickly to determine the needs of your students.
