Help your young readers develop this important reading comprehension skill with this handy template that will help them learn to paraphrase any piece of writing by answering a few open-ended questions.
All authors write for a reason, be it to explain, entertain, or persuade their readers. In this activity, your students will consider the author’s purpose of a book of their choosing, then justify their answer.
A key component of reading comprehension is being able to draw conclusions—or make inferences—about what we read. Use this resource to give your students extra practice making their own inferences based on simple sentences.
Making inferences is a critical skill for young readers to master, as it helps them look beyond the words on the page to figure out the author's message. Use these simple sentences to get your students started in making their own inferences!
It's important for students to understand how characters and the storyline are interconnected. Help your students break down individual character responses to major story events with this graphic organizer.
One of the first questions young readers should ask is, "Who is telling this story?" Here students will practice spotting different points of view by identifying which point of view sentences are written from and then writing sentences of their own.
