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.
