Are you ever concerned your children aren’t truly comprehending what they are reading or what you are reading to them? Do they understand how the parts of a story work together?
These FREE Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers and Templates are simple tools that are easy to use to sharpen reading comprehension skills.
This FREE Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers and Templates unit includes four printable exercises you can use with any text or story your kids are reading.
How Will It End? is designed to help kids think about predicting the end of the story based on what they’ve read so far. They can color the template each time they get a story ending right!
Detective Time is a fun way to check your children’s comprehension of key facts of the story. This detective-themed template helps make checking comprehension easy and fun instead of making it feel like a quiz.
What’s the Main Idea? helps kids think about the point of the stories they read. This is an important skill to develop, because as they get older, they will need to be able to summarize stories and texts and understand how they relate to other things they have read.
The Five W’s help kids figure out:
- who the story is about
- what happened in the story
- where the story took place
- when the story happened
- why certain characters acted the way they did
These worksheets are perfect for early and middle elementary grades and can provide you with insight about what your child is understanding or getting confused about when they read. Scroll for your instant download!
