Pre-K through 1st; use this worksheet regularly with different story comprehension activities.
Because I use the same worksheet template every time we do a story comprehension activity, my students become more confident and participate more. Ever since I created and started using my own worksheets, (which are always formatted the same and therefore provide consistency for the students), I have noticed a huge increase in my students’ ability to focus, desire to participate, and skill success.
To implement this lesson, I ask my students a comprehension question. Referring to a larger poster-sized copy of this worksheet, I point to number one for the first answer, and two for the alternative answer. For example, I may ask, “What did Jack do first when he woke up in the morning?” “Did he (point to number 1) get dressed?
Or did he (point to number 2) eat breakfast? I ask the question a few times and they have the opportunity to respond out loud and then match and circle their answer on their own identical worksheet. Because I use this at the Pre-K level, I always wait for a verbal response and give my students the final answer before they are
expected to circle a number. Near the end of the year, I may ask them to not respond and circle quietly on their own. Of course, you may use this worksheet the way it works best for your students.
This worksheet is great not only to assess comprehension skills, but also focus/attention skills, hand-eye coordination, number recognition, color recognition, and fine motor skills.
