I think every single one of my 2-5th grade inclusion kiddos are working on comprehension this year. It seems like a hallmark sign of a language learning disorder. Some of my kids can even read beautifully, decoding long words and everything. When you ask them about what they’ve read or try to get them to retell the story, they break down completely.
When Kristin over at [simply speech] asked if I wanted to review one of her products, I immediately jumped at the chance to grab her Say What? pack! I love it because it’s simple and straightforward, targeting exactly what I need. Check out Say What? and Say What? Part II!
The first edition of this activity comes with posters that explain story elements and terms and include visuals.
I actually printed out multiple sheets per page and use them as large cards. This works better for me when I do inclusion or push-in sessions.
Also included are 24 mini stories with multiple comprehension questions for each. Most of the questions focus on the story elements, including problem and solution and predicting.
These are great to whip out and gather some data or to reinforce skills they are learning in class!
Now let’s check out Part II. It is a super cute packet as well!
This activity includes a game board and 24 target cards.
These cards address story elements PLUS author’s purpose, fiction/nonfiction, feelings, and sequencing. It’s a little higher level than the first pack.
I highly recommend grabbing BOTH packets! They each come with several unique aspects that you’ll want to be able to mix and match. Grab the Say What? pack at Kristin’s TPT store HERE and the Part II pack HERE!
Also, I’m SO excited to be able to offer a giveaway of these goodies! [simply speech] has generously offered to give a copy of Say What? and Say What? II to 2 lucky winners. So, one person will win the first edition and another person will win the second edition. 🙂 Enter in the rafflecopter below!! Good luck! I’ll choose a winner on Friday! 🙂
