 May Reading Comprehension Checks 



This packet of NO PREP READING COMPREHENSION for May includes 20 simple stories to help with fluency, comprehension and building reading confidence. Each story provides early readers with a genuine opportunity to practice reading short stories they can decode with early phonics skills and sight word recognition. These Comprehension Checks can be used independently, in small groups, guided reading groups, morning work or homework!

**NEW*** This packet now contains a horizontal option to allow students to write longer answers to the questions!
There are 3 Accountability Stars at the top of the page. Students can color a star each time they read a story. This ensures that they are reading the story at least 3 times to encourage fluency

After completing the Comprehension Check, students can color a star on the Reading Comprehension and Fluency Tracker. Each month will have 20 different Comprehension Checks with 5 Comprehension Questions. These simple comprehension questions provide students with an opportunity to look back at the text and using complete sentences. This option is more effective than the "fill in the bubble" method. In addition, students will use the color code to look back in the text (text evidence) and highlight the answers.

This packet includes comprehension checks with and without the crayons.

The Comprehension Questions allow students to work on:
-Making Inferences
-On the surface questions
-Under the surface questions
-Rhyming
-Text Evidence
-Vocabulary
-Making Connections
-Monitor Understanding 
and MORE!

Writing is a skill that requires daily practice! These simple journal prompts are designed to help BEGINNING and/or STRUGGLING writers build confidence, practice articulating thoughts, work on fine motor skills and proper letter formation. 
Each journal prompt has "I Can.." statements to remind students to:
*use capital letters
*finger spacing
*sound out words
*punctuation
*draw a picture to support their text
There is also an illustrated word bank to help students generate ideas and help with spelling. 
 Each prompt comes in two versions: 
*one with a starter sentence to trace
*one without a starter sentence for more advanced writers.

 I hope that these packets make the month of May easier and more successful!
Annie
