Description

Class Experience

Sequencing is one of many skills crucial to great reading comprehension.  Students will work on the order of events of the story as well as identifying the beginning, middle, and end.

Students will have ample practice with many vocabulary words throughout the story.  Understanding vocabulary leads to greater reading comprehension.  Students must understand the words that they read in order to understand and make connections with the text.

Predicting allows students to become actively engaged in the reading process and encourages students to think ahead, ask questions, and anticipate future events.
