      The story is within the text on the worksheets.
      The students select or insert the correct word to complete each sentence.

    On page 1 aren’t there two possible answers for question 3 and 4? scattered and scatters are both correct depending on what tense the sentence is. Also question 4 flew and flies are both correct depending on past or present tense.

      Hi Lara,
      I’m so sorry for the delayed response. This resource is intended to be read as a whole story. So the first two sentence use words that give the students the idea that it should all be written using past tense. I hope that clears it up for you. Thanks for your comment.
