First and second graders are becoming avid readers. Learning to correctly sequence a story is an important building block to becoming a fluent reader. The lesson plan, Draw Beginning, Middle, and End introduces kids to the beginning-middle-end strategy. Children will choose a book at their reading level, and then use the included worksheet to draw what happened at the beginning, middle, and end of their book. By having your child retell the story, they will build vocabulary and improve reading comprehension.
Students will be able to retell a narrative and identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story.
Students will be able to retell a story orally with sequencing words using sentence frames as a support.
