PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Create your own comprehension spinner for your students to use during or after reading a story. These spinners are a fun, simple, and easy tool for kids to use and meet requirements from the new common core standards for telling about a story.

Just copy, mount on tag board, laminate, and attach a spinner and you are ready to roll! The spinner covers main characters, "what would you do if you were a main character?", setting, main idea, problem/solution, important details, and ending of the story.

I like this spinner. I would change 'main idea' to 'big idea'; change 'details' to 'key events'. Also, 'Where does the story take place?' -changed to 'Where is the setting?' Only because they are the vocabulary we use in our kindergarten program. Overall, all the questions are great! I really like your question about 'What would you do if you were the main character?' We use connections to text, self, and world. This question is aligned with connections- self to text. :) Thank you! I wish I could edit it for my classroom.

Hi Mrs. Lewis,

Hello from one of your former kindergarten students! I came across your Reading Comprehension spinner on TpT and recognized your picture. I still remember you as one of my favorite teachers and now I'm excited I can snag some of your materials to use in my speech room! Thank you so much for the resource and hope all is well at CW! :)

On  August 22, 2012Hilary Lewis answered:
Oh my goodness Julianne! You can't believe how your note gave me the cold chills! What an awesome reward for me to realize that I somehow touched your life...and now you are a speech teacher! Please email me sometime so I can hear about your job and your life and family. Thank you so much for your nice note! I showed my phone to Mrs. Ohl (it's Gossett now) and she remembered your family because of David! My email address is hilary35@me.com. Best of luck to you!
Mrs. Lewis aka Mrs. Bell :)

Hi there,

I tried printing your Carnival Comprehension activity and when the wheel came out the words were blacked out. Any suggestions?

Hi there,
I'm sorry you are having trouble. Are you opening the document in 'Preview' on a Mac? If you are, then open it with the Adobe program, not preview. You should also be able to print from a Windows machine. Let me know! Sorry!

Hello

This looks like something my class would LOVE.
I downloaded to my mac book but the text shows up as a blurry bar. I have had this problem with a few sellers but they were able to fix the file somehow. Any chance you know what I'm talking about?
