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.
✅ PRINTABLE (PDF) VERSION ✅
The five reading passages 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).
Bonus Listening Activity
We have included a handout 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 (or via EASEL) so they can read as they listen (without the distraction of other activities on the page). The EASEL online version has the listening as a part of the digital resource. Students just click the listening button to start the audio on their devices.
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.
All reading texts, questions and instructions are 100% in English.
