This file contains reading comprehension activities for both fiction and nonfiction texts. I have included retelling cards for both genres, each with accompanying comprehension questions to fit any text. I have also included a checklist to match the retelling cards for both fiction and nonfiction. You can have students work with a partner to retell a grade level appropriate text. One partner reads each card and answers the comprehension question, while the second partner checks partner 1's retelling answers.
Your students could complete these activities in leveled reading groups, after reading a text whole group, or you could send them home with each child as a homework resource for parents.
