  • Access students' prior knowledge by displaying a familiar picture book and asking students to remind you what the story is about.
  • Explain that they just helped you "retell" the story, this means they reminded you of what happened in the story in the correct order.
  • Point to the familiar book. Remind students that the words in a book are written by a person called the author and that the pictures are made by a person called the illustrator. Point out the author and illustrator in the familiar picture book.
  • Tell students that today you will be paying attention to how the words and pictures tell a story from the beginning to the end, or in order.
