Develop Early Reading Comprehension Skills for a Lifetime of Reading Fulfillment

Reading fluency goes beyond reading words on a page and entails truly understanding and engaging with stories and texts. This level of comprehension and engagement can also make the difference between seeing reading as a chore and developing a lifelong love affair with reading. Whether your first grader is struggling with reading or rolling right along, our reading comprehension worksheets will help your child connect with stories on a whole new level. Using both beloved and original stories, kids can learn sequencing and story elements with cut-and-paste storyboard activities and fairy tale story maps and graphic organizers, practice making inferences and predictions, engage in sharing and retelling by recounting details of favorite stories, and create character puppets or conduct character interviews to bring the stories to life. Take learning beyond the classroom setting by asking questions during and after reading stories with your child, acting out scenes together, or having your child create original illustrations or write their own story endings. For even more reading practice, check out our first grade early literacy concepts worksheets.
