New Year's Listening Comprehension *Freebie*

The year is quickly ending, and soon the new year will be upon us!  So I thought it would be appropriate (and fun!) to do an activity for New Year's.

I chose to make this one a listening comprehension activity. However, it is easily adaptable to a reading comprehension activity as well! This download is 9 pages in length and contains 20 passage cards, 4 blank cards, 6 task cards, and a game board.

Students will draw two cards: A task card and a passage card. The passage cards contain 3-4 sentences about some fun New Year's fact.  Read this card to your students. 

The task cards prompt the student to answer WH-questions or recall 1-2 details about what they just heard.

If the student answers correctly, they move forward one space on the game board.  There are spaces on the board designated specifically for the task cards and passage cards.

You can grab this freebie here!  Please comment on this post if you do grab it! 

You can find more ideas on my Facebook page or at my TpT store.
