10 engaging stories for your students to practice close reading, fluency, story elements, retelling, and comprehension!
One side includes a short story and asks the student to read the story 3 times. This will help build fluency! It also asks the student to identify the characters, setting, problem and solution by underlining them in different colors. One last activity asks the kids to illustrate different parts of the story. The other side includes the same story and asks the student to retell the story from beginning to end in their own words. It also asks students if they enjoyed the story or not.
Each story also comes with 6 discussion cards.
They’re perfect for getting a discussion about the story going during small group time! (I pass around a microphone for students to answer the discussion questions. They love it!)
Have fun teaching!!!
