PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these 5 easy-to-print, ready-to-go comprehension activity sheets to accompany the book "First Day Jitters!" by Julie Danneberg. All have been student-tested, teacher-approved :)

The first 2 worksheets have approximately 8 questions each, consisting of multiple choice and short answer. The questions are based on the story and assess:
- Main Idea
- Details
- Sequence of Events
- Drawing Conclusions / Making Inferences
- Context Clues / Vocabulary
- Character Study
- Author's Purpose

A 3rd worksheet is a tactile activity that combines plot study with sequence of events, requiring students to determine what happens in the beginning, middle and end (and in which order).

A 4th activity asks students to put themselves in Mr. Hartwell's shoes and write about how his (and Sarah's) day went. This fun writing activity taps into students' imaginations while allowing them to become an expert on one of the story's main characters.

A 5th worksheet asks students to read the poem "Bedtime Jitter Glitters" and then answer 4 multiple choice questions that assess:
- Main Idea
- Details
- Character Study

Use these worksheets:
- as an assessment to cap-off your unit on "First Day Jitters"
- to assess reading/listening comprehension readiness
- to assess standardized testing readiness
- as a reading center activity
- as guided/independent work after read-aloud
- as homework

The book "First Day Jitters" by Julie Danneberg is available for purchase on Amazon.com.
