This worksheet is part of a reading readiness series designed to help young learners practice basic reading and comprehension skills. It provides a word box with the words “mom,” “dad,” “boy,” and “girl,” and below the box are four sentences with a blank space in each. The students are instructed to read the sentences and fill in the blanks with the correct word from the word box to complete the sentence. There are illustrations of a male and female character on the worksheet, presumably to help provide context for the sentences.
The worksheet is teaching students to recognize and understand simple nouns that describe family members and gender. It encourages the development of early reading skills by having students match words to the appropriate gender and familial roles. This activity also aids in reinforcing the understanding of sentence structure and context clues. By completing this exercise, students improve their ability to make connections between written words and their meanings.
