What makes these Digital January Kindergarten Reading Passages so unique?
By offering a variety of captivating themes and leveled passages, this product empowers you to differentiate instruction effectively. It promotes engagement, supports individualized learning, and enables you to assess student comprehension conveniently. With these digital January kindergarten reading passages, you can foster a love for reading while addressing the diverse needs of your students.
This product includes four reading passage topics. Each topic in this set includes two leveled passages (one harder and one easier) with free-response and multiple-choice question options for each passage. That’s a total of 16 passage options in this set!
The passages have been carefully leveled, and the levels are subtly marked with a small icon in the corner (a heart icon labels the easier version, and the star the harder version).
No child will feel left out since the mark is only a small symbol. Because both of the leveled options have the same questions, you can assign each child the page that is most appropriate for their level while still discussing the same topics and questions with the full class. Differentiation made simple! Alternatively, you can always assign the full class the same passage option.
Every passage includes three comprehension questions. Instead of the questions focusing solely on the “what,” Special attention has been given to include other types of questions (for example: who, when, where, why, and how).
The students will also be asked to cite the textual evidence for each answer using red, yellow, and blue movable clipart pieces. This technique requires students to slow down and think critically during each question. It also helps students develop the habit of reviewing the text again prior to submitting an answer.
Additionally, free-response and multiple-choice question options are given for each topic. This gives you versatility. Assign the multiple-choice option, if you’re crunched for time, assign free-response to focus on handwriting, etc.
Relevant content sparks students’ interest and increases engagement. Not only do these passages include colored clipart and a variety of non-fiction and fiction stories, but your students will also be excited to study topics like holidays and seasons that are part of their present environment. Use that to help them develop key reading comprehension skills.
