I found that a lot of my students (kindergarten and first grade) were not reading for meaning or thinking about what they were reading, so I created this reading comprehension pack as a solution.
This packet has the materials to make a file folder activity that students can use in buddy/partner reading to spark a discussion on the elements of the stories they read. There are comprehension pictures for characters, setting, plot, characters' feelings, your questions, and your favorite part. As students discuss each element, they can move the picture down from the "thought bubble" to the empty spaces so that they know what they have discussed already.
The pictures can also be used by gluing them to a popsicle stick and having students pull out elements of the story to discuss in reading.
In addition, there are 8 different comprehension writing prompts that can be used. Each writing prompt has two options, one with smaller lines and one with larger lines. You can choose which prompts best fit your students' needs!
This pack focuses on fiction texts. I have a second pack that focuses on nonfiction texts! That packet can be purchased here:
I also have a combined product with both packets here:
I hope it helps your class!
