Reading Comprehension Printable Sort

Well, I am very pleased to announce that there are only 14 days of school left until Spring Break.  But, who’s counting?!?!? HA!!!! I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but the BEAUTIFUL weather we’ve been having is definitely putting me in the mood for a break.  Bring on the above freezing temperatures, please!!!! 

So, did anyone else watch the season premiere of the Amazing Race last night? What happened, Cowboys?!?!?! My favorite team in last place??? So sad. Good thing I believe in retroactive prayer, because they need some serious prayin’ if they are going to escape elimination after ROUND ONE. Total sadness.. But, it’s okay, Cowboys. I believe in you. I promise ♥♥♥    

But enough about the Amazing Race On to business 
We’re well into the Second Semester of First Grade which means reading comprehension is BIG TIME on my mind. Below is a reading comprehension sort to provide practice recognizing past, present, and future tenses.  In addition to the sort, I’ve included a small quiz you may want to give your kiddos, too. I always like to give the kids a “Show What You Know” activity following any kind of group work to make sure they’ve understood the concept individually.  

Have a fabulous Tuesday!!!!!
