This two page worksheet can follow any version of the classic tale, “Three Little Pigs” and still work. In the first part, students read sentences and then circle the words that tell “when.” Besides circling the “when” words, they must write them on the adjoining lines. In part one most answers are adverbs and time-order words. It’s up to you whether you want to use the grammar names for the words or not.
The second part of the worksheet has students circling words that tell “what kind” and then writing them on the adjoining lines. Their answers will be adjectives since they are all describing words. Once again, it’s up to you if you want to use the grammar term of “adjectives” or not.
Second graders can probably do this worksheet independently. Some first graders will need a little guidance, while others can probably do it independently. For kindergarteners, you might have to read and guide them through it. If you project the pages on a Smart board, you could call on students to come up to the board and circle a “when” word, and then have another student write it on the line. Next students can come to the projected page and circle the “what kind” words used and others students write those adjective on the lines provided. This process of having volunteers come up to the projected page and write answers might be a nice method of students checking their work.
The worksheet is an effective for test practice and preparation. It improves literal comprehension because students need to locate answers that are explicitly stated in the material. The worksheet also has three cute color drawings of each little pig. Plus, you also get an answer key. Being a word document, you can easily print off the amount of copies you need. You will also be able to easily add questions to it or adjust it any way you wish.
