Fairy Tale Reading Comprehension

A great way to help children to learn to read is to read them fairy tales and have them act out the fairy tales!  When students are just beginning to start to read it is great if they can listen to a story and retell it back.  This helps see if they understood what they read.  The point of reading is to find meaning/comprehend what is read.  If a child can retell a story, this is a good step in reading readiness!  Once a child can read, you want to make sure the child understands what they read.  Many children know fairy tales so it is good to help them gain confidence with reading comprehension by having them read the fairy tale and then answer questions about the fairy tale. Today I have a Fairy Tale Reading Comprehension fun!  I have a 3 little pig story/activity book and then some reading comprehension passages.    You can have the students read their own little story.  They can also cut up the pages and put them in order -this is a great reading comprehension exercise!  I also have some reading comprehension questions they can answer about the 3 little pigs.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
