I’ve been thinking about making a set of comprehension objective book reports for some time. The full set will include the various reading comprehension objectives in first grade, which include: Draw Conclusions, Plot, Problem and Solution, Character Study, Main Idea and Details, Facts in the Text, Inference and this one, Sequence. These are all book reports I have used in my classroom, but I have never created proper digital copies that can be easily shared or sold. The idea behind these book reports:
Drawing Builds Comprehension and Engagement, and Differentiates the Work for your Class!
When you use these drawing-based book reports, you probably want to model a “minimum” example on the board for the students so that they will be able to conceptualize what you want. You may leave your example up (if the class really struggles) or erase it (if the class is more independent) and just give extra help to a few students during the work time. You know your students best. These book reports would, depending on the students, be appropriate up to 3rd or 4th grade or so, with a great deal of support for the first graders going into a “gradual release” for second and then independence in 3rd and 4th.
