Because I need a large variety of cloze worksheets at a level of understanding for my students I tutor, and being unable to produce that amount of creativity or find what I need, I set out to use stories from long ago in the public domain.
I divided and formatted the story to be cloze sentences and cover four pages. I have included the story, only divided by the four parts of the worksheets. The worksheets follow the story exactly. Read the story to your students before they do the worksheets. Have the students do one worksheet a day. You may need to re-read the whole story each day or just the part relevant to the worksheet for each day. Students should complete the worksheets without having access to the full story or part.
The story covers three pages, before I divided into it four worksheets. This story of “The Shoemaker and the Elves,” is as I took it from the public domain book: The Beacon Second Reader, by James H. Fassett. Published in 1914 by Ginn & Company. The picture is also from the same book. The link for it is at https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15659
At the end of this product is a larger picture of what you see on this cover page, which actually comes from the book mentioned above. You may wish to have your students color the picture.
You have permission to use these worksheets for your class year after year, but please do not share them with other teachers. I have kept my price low because of the fact that the story is public domain and anyone can do the same thing I have done. But because my idea for doing this was mine alone and I put forth a good amount of time in organizing it, you are saved much time. So in the interest of fairness, please do not share this with other teachers.
