Do your kids understand what is going on in a story? Do they understand that a story is more than facts and that there are things happening such as change, cause and effect, and motivations?
These FREE Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers and Templates are easy-to-use tools to help with reading comprehension. They also help teach kids to truly understand what is happening in what they read and why it happens the way it does.
This FREE Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers and Templates unit consists of four organizers and templates you can use with any story your kids are reading.
Cause and Effect looks at what causes and effects are and then asks kids to think of an effect to go with several illustrated actions.
How Things Change helps kids learn to spot changes in a story, because without change, there is no story! They can see if the characters, setting, situations, or many other things have changed during the story they just read.
The Heart of a Character helps kids start to learn the difference between character traits and motives and identify them in what they have read.
Growing and Changing helps kids chart the growth of their favorite characters in a story. Learning to understand the process of how a character changes is a key part of helping them write their own stories in the future.
