Summer Reading Resource!!! (Informational Texts for 3rd-5th)

During homeschool, I've been working on "seasons" with my toddler...soon-to-be preschooler *insert sad, emotional, hot mess mama face here*. I explained to him that summer is when the pool is open again. We were getting ready to go to the pool the other morning and he exclaimed pretty enthusiastically, "Mommy, is it summer time today?!" 

Yes! It is, indeed!

Not only do we love summer here in this household, but as a teacher I love how summer is a time my ELL students can get ahead a bit and prepare for the upcoming school year. Reading is something that is needed in so many areas in school. I wanted to make a product for them that can help them with comprehension and fluency. My newest Summer Informational Reading Pack has 8 summer-themed passages that range from 100-300 words. Following the reading, the comprehension questions are various tasks that cover CCSS skills for 3rd-5th grade such as inferring, making connections, and following different set of directions to explain and identify key details from the passage. I wanted to make the tasks for each passage a little different from each other so that students can get some good practice in on reading and following instructions.

The subjects I chose are all things I love about summer! It's always fun to watch my students intrigued about what they learn as they read since a lot of them aren't originally from the States!

And for a bonus in this pack - I included three graphic organizers that correspond to the passages. With these organizers, you can integrate a vocabulary building task to each lesson. Vocabulary is always a must-practice, must-build, must-review kind of skill during summer break. At least, in my book! No pun intended. :) 

The one in the photo below is my latest freebie! Come by my store and grab it while I have it up! I'm excited to use this on days where I want to focus in on JUST vocabulary. 

Come check this out at my store today, and I hope you can find this product as useful as I have. Happy teaching, and happy learning y'all!
