Three By The Sea is an easy-to-read classic written by Edward Marshall and illustrated by James Marshall. They're the same team that helped children learn to love reading by creating the Fox series, the George and Martha books, and many other lighthearted stories that tickle the funny bone of young readers. In this book, 3 friends - Lolly, Sam, and Spider - are at the beach and have just eaten lunch. As they wait to go back into the water, they pass the time telling each other stories, each trying to outdo the others. Children will love finding out whose story is the best.
This unit is three pages long and reinforces reading comprehension skills. Students are asked to place important story events in the correct order, identify whose story contains which details, and finally insert important words to create their own version of the scariest story. These worksheets are fun, easy to use, and make the story a more valuable reading experience.
