Help your students retell a simple fictional text using a paragraph frame for support! In this activity, students will read a short story about a family's camping trip and then summarize it by filling in the blanks.
One of the first questions young readers should ask is, "Who is telling this story?" Here students will practice spotting different points of view by identifying which point of view sentences are written from and then writing sentences of their own.
This short nonfiction text will teach students about the ocean, and includes questions to help students identify the author’s point of view and purpose for writing the text by focusing on important vocabulary words that support the main idea.
