This lesson thoughtfully scaffolds the reading skill of predicting. Students are introduced to the concept and get to practice making predictions. They will apply what they have learned during a focused independent reading activity.
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.
Making inferences is a critical skill for young readers to master, as it helps them look beyond the words on the page to figure out the author's message. Use these simple sentences to get your students started in making their own inferences!
Use this lesson to help your ELs understand the relationship between cause and the effect sentences. It can be a stand-alone lesson or a support lesson to the Fiction Comprehension: Cause and Effect lesson.
