December 22, 1882, Edward H. Johnson, an employee for Thomas Edison’s Illumination Company used lights strung together to decorate his holiday tree. This passage gives history/traditions for string lights, dreidels, tree ornaments, wreaths, holly, snowmen and poinsettias. Read about the history of decorations and traditions. Use the questions in standardized test format to check comprehension and help students prepare for high-stakes testing. Each passage contains these types of questions:

  • main idea

  • inference
  • summarizing

Nonfiction passages are based on an event which occurred on this day in history. 
This passage is completely stand alone and appropriate for any day of the year. Mix and match by purchasing the topics you want or save with monthly bundles and give your students daily opportunities to develop background knowledge and improve their comprehension.

Passages have been evaluated using a minimum of 5 different readability formulas. The first passage is the most challenging, with an average reading level of 9th-10th grade. The second passage has an average readability of 8th grade. The third passage averages a 6th-7th grade level. With teacher introduction and background information, the passages have been used successfully with younger readers.
