Christmas Reading Comprehension Assignments, Short Stories, & Creative Writing is a fun and creative way to improve your students’ comprehension and writing skills with a holiday twist. Students will read three short, fictional Christmas stories that are highly engaging. Then, they will complete three short reading comprehension assignments, including multiple-choice and short-answer questions. Finally, students will complete three high-interest creative writing assignments related to the reading. This resource is the perfect way to bring the holidays into the classroom at Christmas while still meeting curriculum skills and standards!

Included in the Christmas Reading Comprehension and Creative Writing Resource:

➡️ Three Holiday Fictional Short Stories: Hook students in with these three high-interest Christmas short stories. The stories are about a snowman named Frosty who is learning to ski, a Christmas where Santa had to deliver the gifts on foot, and a dog named Jingles who wants to be on the reindeer team.

➡️️ Three Reading Comprehension Assignments: After students have finished reading the stories, they can complete these one-page reading comprehension assignments. Each one includes six multiple-choice questions and two short answer questions that require students to refer back to the text for evidence. These are great for standardized testing practice for comprehension and finding text evidence. Detailed answer keys are included for easy grading or class review.

➡️ Three Creative Writing Assignments: Once students have read the story and completed the reading comprehension assignment, they can try their hand at creative writing with the three writing assignments that relate to each of the readings. For the Frosty reading, they will create a comic strip that expands on the snowball fight that occurs in the story. For the Santa story, students will design a new mode of transportation for Santa to deliver presents, and for the Jingles story, they will outline a daily schedule for the new pup on the reindeer team. These were designed to be creative, fun, and engaging assignments for students to connect to the text.
