This 22 page reading comprehension pack includes a short story with a black and white picture which students may color. Each story and related questions are on a full page. Under each short story, there are three questions about the story. The three questions ask “Who? What? and Where? questions about the story. At the bottom of each page, there are 6 choices for the answers to the questions with only 3 being correct. Students will cut and glue the correct answer for each question in the space provided. If time does not permit students to cut and paste, students may simply write the answer to the questions in the box provided after viewing the answer choices.
The 22 stories are shown in the preview. The stories focus on community helpers. The 22 community helpers included are crossing guard, detective, doctor, mailman, fireman, chef, mechanic, nurse, policeman, teacher, trash collector, vet, farmer, forest ranger, lifeguard, miner, oil worker, ski guide, tour guide, waiter, maid, and fisherman.
There are many uses for these stories/questions. They can be used in a kindergarten class with the teacher reading the story and questions to the students and having the students use invented spelling to write their answers. They can also be used for independent reading practice in first or second grade by letting students read the short story, read the questions, and answer the questions even if they have to look back in the story to find the answer.
These short stories are great for guided reading groups, homework, a mini lesson, or literacy center activities.
I hope your students enjoy these stories and questions.

I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
