Do you read the story There Was A Cold Lady
by Lucille Colandro? If so, I think you'll enjoy This Cold Lady Story Wheel
It's a quick, easy & fun
way to assess comprehension
and practice sequencing
, as well as retelling a story
There are full color patterns
to use for centers
, as well as a sample to share, plus a black and white
pattern, so your students can make their own.
When everyone is done with their story wheel, take a moment to retell the story
as a whole group, by turning the wheel.
As a comprehension-assessment tool
, and for fine motor practice, another option is to have students cut up the picture sections, then glue them to the blank wheel in the appropriate order.
To practice ordinal numbers
, have children write 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. on each piece.
I've also included "Sequence the Story” Puzzles
Use the full-color versions for an independent center
, and print the black & white
pattern, so children can color, cut and arrange their own puzzle.
There's also a writing prompt worksheet
, where students write what happened in the story.
If you’re studying fractions
, be sure and take a teachable moment to review that vocabulary and information.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a winter filled with wonder!
