Comprehending and Paraphrasing Narrative Texts Packet

If you haven’t read it already, please head over and read my Comprehending and Paraphrasing Expository Text post here. In that post, I detail the research behind this packet!


If expository text is too high level for your students, this packet is for you! It contains 36 cards with narrative text, a graphic organizer (2 versions), a die printable, dice game, 2 half-sheets for homework, and instructions!

Each student should draw a card. Then, according to the RAP protocol outlined in my earlier post, the student should detail the main idea and 2 details from the story (on the included graphic organizer). Last, the student should retell the story in their own words!

This is one of the best ways to increase your student’s comprehension of text!

Below are sample pictures of this packet:
