About this Product:
Part of the The Specific Skill Builders series, this section was created to give students targeted practice with Finding the Facts- a key comprehension skill. By focusing on one comprehension skill at a time, struggling readers will have an opportunity to master that skill and improve overall reading and comprehension skills.
This section includes 15 high-interest short stories featuring a variety of fiction and nonfiction topics. The word count of the stories ranges from 141 to 155 words. They are written at a 3.0-4.5 reading level, to make them suitable for a wide range of students.
Each story is numbered rather than given a title. The final activity on each slide asks the student to write a title for the story. Having the student write a title is often a very effective way to determine the student's level of understanding about the main idea of the story. The engaging illustrations were designed to bring the story to life and help capture the interest of reluctant readers. The questions specifically focus on helping students Find the Facts.
Introducing the Skill:
Being able to find the facts in a story is a basic, yet essential comprehension skill. It will help lay the foundation for success in mastering other comprehension skills. To introduce this skill, explain to students that facts are small bits of information that make up the whole of a story. These specific details usually tell who, what, when, where, and how. Names of people and places, dates, times, and numbers give us the facts in a story.
For example: Ask students to list some facts about their school. What is the name of the school? Where is it located? How many students attend the school?
Students who are successful readers pay close attention to the facts in a story. Knowing the facts is essential to fully comprehending the meaning of a story.
Two types of questions are included on each slide. There are questions that require written answers and multiple-choice questions. Questions 1-3 are multiple-choice questions. Questions 4 and 5 ask students to write facts from the story.
