This 7 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The seven pages consist of a title page “Where? When? Why?” Then each of the remaining 6 pages includes a short story with a matching black and white picture. Under each short story, there are three questions about the story. The three questions ask “Where? When? Why? questions about the story.
These stories and questions can be put together in booklet form as discussed above or individual sheets can be used. The story/questions are on a half sheet of paper.
No matter what format you decide on, there are many uses for these stories/questions. The stories include a variety of reading levels. 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, 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.
