Ready, Set, Go! Comprehension Fun!
My Ready, Set, Go Vocabulary Pack has been such a hit that I had to create one for comprehension skills!!
Have fun practicing listening and/or reading comprehension skills with this race car themed activity!
Using this file:
-Print and laminate the race track page.
-Grab a dice and game pawns/pieces.
-Print and laminate (or glue onto index cards/card stock) the game cards and keep them in separate piles next to the game board.
-Students can start at the “starting flags.” They can roll the dice and move along the race track. If they land on:
**A traffic light: Students will answer a question from the traffic light pile. These cards require students to express main ideas based on paragraphs read or heard.
**A stop sign: Students will answer a question from the stop sign pile. These cards require the students to express causes or effects based on statements heard or read.
**The starting flags: Students will answer a question from the flag pile. These cards require students to express predictions based on paragraphs heard or read.
Students will keep going until all cards are used, time runs out, or you decide the game is over. As they answer question cards accurately, they can hold onto these cards. At the end of the game, students will count the cards they have collected to determine a winner!
