Story Study

Group rotations in Reading are so beneficial, and Read to Self/Read to a Partner is a staple. We need to know that our scholars are actively engaged in the activity while we’re at the Teacher Table working with another group. Whether you use AR books or Reading A–Z books, these comprehension worksheets are a great way to check for understanding. Students can then share their stories using these worksheets with their group when they come to the Teacher Table, and these are also great to prepare for an AR quiz. These worksheets are used for literature, covering genre, characters, author’s purpose, setting, problem, solution, and sequence of events. There are four different worksheets leveled for differentiation.
