As I mentioned prior, by the end of March, Kindergarten has a goal of ALL students reading on a RRR level independent C level and 5/7 for comprehension to be on track for promotion to first grade. The overall the end of the school year kindergarten students should be reading on an RRR independent D-E level and 5/7 comprehension in order to be on track for promotion to first grade. Our boys can use your support by simply continuing to practice reading books on and above their level AND asking them comprehension questions following the story. Also, practicing the ALL of the sight words from our list daily, so they can recall them easily and apply those sight words when reading books. They have leveled readers at the library or you can order leveled readers from our scholastic book order forms I send home or you can order them online. I showed my cherubs how you could even order on line as they wanted to teach you!!! They are so delicious!
The following are some simple questions you can ask my sweet boys to strengthen comprehension skills prior to, during, and following a reading a story:
Look at the front cover and make a prediction on what the story could be about.
What happened in the story?
What was the problem and solution in the story?
What is the setting (where the story takes place)?
Who are the characters in the story?
What lesson did the author wanted to teach you?
What was your favorite part in the story?
Does the story remind you of anything?
Do the characters remind you of someone?
Some examples of writing complete sentences my gentlemen can practice are: I like the ____ (cat, bat, cap) or We see the ____ (rat, man, can). After writing a sentence, we do our "5 checks!"
Capital letter to begin the sentence.
Spaces in between words.
Period at the end of a sentence.
Reread to make sure the sentence makes sense.
Does our illustration/picture match our sentence?
