April 1st is April Fool’s Day. This packet is perfect for celebrating this unique holiday, a mini reading unit, or an informational reading unit! It has been a great hit with many teachers and reluctant readers.
The informational passage included in this April Fools Day reading resource is provided in two differentiated reading levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. I’ve taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!
This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities.
