Description

This purposeful activity has been designed to accompany a whole class reading of the picture book Thelma the Unicorn by Aaron Blabey. These no-prep comprehension worksheets will allow you to check your students’ ability to make meaningful connections with the story based on their prior knowledge and text clues. These connections are so important because they enable students to make sense of what they are reading.

If students are focusing on text-to-self connections, have them consider what personal connections they have to the characters, settings or events in the story. If focusing on text-to-text connections, have students consider what fiction or non-fiction books, films, and television shows the text reminds them of. If focusing on text-to-world connections, have students consider what real-world places, people, animals, events or issues spark a connection. We have included multiple options to suit the needs of your class, including:

  1. Drawing text-to-self, text-to-text and text-to-world connections.
  2. Drawing and describing text to self, text to text and text to world connections.
  3. Describing text to self, text to text and text to world connections.
  4. Completing a Venn diagram, focusing on text-to-self connections.
  5. Completing a Venn diagram, focusing on text-to-text connections.
  6. Completing a Venn diagram, focusing on text-to-world connections.
  7. In addition, we have also included a blank Venn diagram.

This task is perfect for independent work, a small group task, scribing, evidence for assessment or for a relief folder!

Early Years and Foundation students may benefit from having this resource enlarged to A3 to provide more space for drawing and writing.

This resource is available in our basic fun font and all Australian state fonts.
