Story wheels are a quick, easy and fun way to practice reading and writing in your language arts class or as part of your Daily 5 activities.
Use to assess comprehension, practice sequencing, retelling of a story, assess fine motor skills or teach a new concept in any school subject.
Print on regular white letter sized paper or cardstock
Color in the pictures using crayons, colored pencils or markers
Cut out circle 1 and circle 2 of the wheel
Punch the dot in the middle of the two circles so they line up using a metal brad
Turn the wheel to reveal the next part of the story.
Wheels can also be glued into visual journals or other notebooks (i.e. math journal)
Makes a fun activity for kids to color and read or create their own version of the story.
Alternatives for this lesson would be to have students use one of the following:
Circle 2 - blank – have students cut out the pictures and
glue them in order
Circle 2 - no text - have the children write their own text
Circle 2 - no pictures - have the children draw their own pictures
