We have been hard at work at comprehension in Kindergarten. This fabulous idea is from my teaching partner Kim!
Instead of the traditional approach to comprehension as a lot of our kids would not be able to read and answer a question, we moved towards the drawing side to show understanding. This week we did the Rainbow Fish.
I thought a know story might help a bit with the recall of details and the series of events.
We used this template which (hopefully) gave them a defined idea of beginning middle and end.
I actually read the story twice (as well as having listened to it a week earlier on Storyline Online) so they
were should have been quite familiar.
Here is a couple of the finished comprehensions, I asked each child one on one to explain their pictures and scribed their answer.
We will continue with this this term. How do you do comprehension in Kindergarten?
