Reading advancement with Jedi style!
These progressive Star Wars reading comprehension activities for grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 will motivate students to improve their reading skills as they complete elementary reading worksheet packets through ten levels.
Kids LOVE to advance their badges up through the levels! Each of the ten levels progressively challenges them with more rigorous content as they advance.
Download the sample to see what you get. It includes all instructions plus the complete level 1 and level 10 packets for comparison.
Tip: This is a perfect, self-guided activity for early finishers.
Reading Lessons Are Built In
Each book they read is analyzed with a genre-specific summary sheet. By the time they are done, your developing readers will have finished 57 books!
Don't worry about how to teach these reading comprehension exercises. I include everything you need to set up your Star Wars display area and step-by-step instructions with lots of “been there, done that” teaching tips.
As the levels increase, so do the worksheet activities, encouraging students to select multiple genres:
- Historical fiction
- Realistic fiction
- Traditional literature
- …and many more
