The Seasons – English Reading


5 short English reading passages about the seasons with simple comprehension questions.


Reading Activities in English about the four seasons.

All texts are short with 4 or 5 sentences written in the Present Tense. The rest of the page has simple comprehension questions to check understanding.

The five worksheets are: The seasons of the year, Spring, Summer, Fall / Autumn and Winter.

These worksheets should only take 10-15 minutes each so are a great activity to warm up a class or to end the day. You could do a worksheet every day (lasting a school week) or leave them as homework.

These reading passages would be great in an emergency as a quick filler and you may also find them useful to hand out to fast finishers (so they don’t disrupt others).

All reading texts, questions and instructions are 100% in English.

Bonus Listening Activity

We have included a sheet with these 5 stories on one page (without exercises). This can be used where the teacher gives the comprehension questions orally, or can be used in conjunction with the audio on our YouTube channel so they can read as they listen (without the distraction of other activities on the page).

There is another sheet with the 5 stories on one page, but this time with certain words missing and replaced by a blank line where students can fill with the word they hear on the listening.

Note: The audio of the listening only appears on our YouTube channel. The recording is spoken by a native English speaker.
