This is an engaging literacy center or small group activity that highlights reading comprehension practice. This packet focuses on improving students’ comprehension of short fiction stories through improving inference and sequence skills and is aligned with Common Core ELA- Literacy RL. 3.1 and RL 4.1.

This packet is setup as 10 mini packets. Each mini packet includes:
• 1 short fiction story
• 3 multiple-choice comprehension questions (Each question is set up as an inference practice.)
• 3 illustrations that need to be labeled in the correct order

This is a great packet to implement right before testing as another interesting avenue for practicing reading comprehension skills.

In my classroom, I like to use this packet in 2 ways:
1. As a literacy center activity where my students can work independently to complete each story, its 3 comprehension questions, and its sequence illustrations.
2. As a small group activity where I can read 1 story with a small group and discuss the comprehension questions and sequence illustrations together.

This packet includes:
• 10 short stories
• 30 multiple-choice questions that target inference practice
• 30 illustrated scenes that target sequence practice
• 1 answer recording log
• 1 answer key that can be used by the teacher or students
• A direction sheet for students to reference when this activity is used as a center

Of the 36 pages in this packet, 30 of them are print ready and reusable.

Please take a few minutes to download the free preview which will help you asses the reading level of the comprehension stories and the depth of the questions.

Happy Reading!
