Once Upon a Time Reading Comprehension
This is a magical packet of 10 stories, multiple questions, and card decks related to receptive and expressive language that can be targeted with reading and story comprehension.
How to use these stories: Read a story and have students answer the appropriate questions based on their therapy goals. Cards are provided to aid in different types of question, although frequently, additional questions can be asked that match the target.
To target auditory comprehension, read the stories and questions to students. To target reading comprehension, have students read the story and questions out loud.
It might be helpful to review the synonym, antonym, multiple meaning, category, and/or vocabulary cards before reading the stories so discussion of these items does not have to occur during the middle of the story.
Stories can be broken down into smaller chunks for students who need shorter stories to target their language comprehension goals.
Although these stories were designed to be used in small group or one-on-one therapy sessions, they can be modified to suit reading centers in a classroom at each individual’s discretion.
