Presidents’ Day is literally around the corner, and though you might be a little behind the the pre-holiday prep activities, there’s nothing better than bringing the students back on Tuesday with fresh and relevant reading material!
Over the last few years I’ve been using ReadWorks as a resource and tool for my classroom. As someone who’s passionate about reading, I’m always looking for new ways to engage students in reading material. One of the most effective ways to do that is to relate their reading to their lives—and with the day off of school, this is relevant!
It’s of utmost importance for students to know about history, and it goes without saying that the USA’s previous presidents fit into that category. If you’re looking for reading passages at all grade levels, check out the Presidents’ Day Listing on ReadWorks! Here you can search for any grade level from Kindergarten to 12th grade. You can also search for texts with question sets, vocabulary words, and varied word lengths.
