Improve Reading Comprehension While Learning Interesting Historical Facts!
This book features high-interest, “on this date in history” stories for the month of May. There is an historical nonfiction short story for each day of the month.
Reading and Interest Level
The stories were written at an approximate reading level of grades 3-4.
In some cases, proper names of people, places, and events, as well as other
necessary descriptive vocabulary, may drive the reading level up a bit. The interest level is aimed at students in grades 5 and up who may not be reading at grade level.
The topics chosen are not necessarily the most important thing to have happened on a particular date. The variety of people, places, and events highlighted in each story were chosen to appeal to a wide range of interests. Students will learn a variety of historical facts while improving their reading and comprehension skills.
Each story is followed by 8 skill-specific comprehension questions. Question formats include multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and writing complete sentences. Skills focus on: main idea, facts, locating the answer, vocabulary, sequence, comparison, cause and effect, fact or opinion, conclusion, and inference.
