In teaching reading comprehension it is good to begin with the basics. Vocabulary building is a good first step in contributing to reading comprehension in young students. When the vocabulary is set in a good foundation, comprehension follows more easily.
Begin with a lesson in word matching. For example, have students complete a worksheet on “matching opposites.”
Example: Match list A with list B
Another good lesson in reading comprehension is to have your students practice fill in the blank sentences.
She made put pink frosting on the freshly baked ___________.
Building / hamburger / birthday cake / skates
A variation on the above would be to have the student choose ALL the possible answers:
He wore his favorite _________ to the football game.
Jersey / sneakers / house / hat
