Digging deeper into meaning…‘Tis the season for getting into the spirit of Christmas stories! Christmas stories are magical. We love reading them, then we put them back on the shelf. Reading Comp. Cards are to further add to the depth of comprehension as your students move through these stories. Whether read aloud or independently, these comp cards can be done together in: Small reading groups, whole class read alouds, partner reading buddies, or as an independent reader.
Upon completion of reading the Christmas story, don’t just put it back on the shelf. Give students a pack of comp cards & let them dig deeper into the meaning of the story. To further extend this, have students record their answers on the fun pages that match the comp cards!
Digging deeper into meaning…let’s GET the whole story!!
