Beginning Middle End

Identifying the most important event from the beginning, middle and end of the story helps a reader understand how organization, sequence, and plot make a good story. This can then be applied to their own writing. Teaching students to retell occurrences in a story helps them become more accurate in summarizing and monitoring their understanding.

Story elements

A graphic organizer, such as a story map, can help students visually organize a story's elements, increasing their ability to retell, summarize, and comprehend the story.

Sentence transformations

This activity gives students practice with sentence structure (Syntax). Transforming words that are out of order forces students to think about each word in a sentence rather than only memorizing an entire phrase without understanding the importance of structure.

Writing prompts

Making connections is thinking about the text in relation to ourselves, other texts, and the world. Making connections provides the basis for learning, as students connect new information with their own experiences. This develops fluency with their comprehension skills.

KWL charts

This note-taking device guides students through a three-step process to activate background knowledge, develop a purpose for learning, and summarize.

Literal, Inferential, and Evaluative Question Answering

  • Literal questions have responses that are directly stated in the text.
  • Inferential questions have responses that are indirectly stated, induced, or require other information.
  • Evaluative questions require the reader to formulate a response based on their opinion.

These questions will enhance your students reading comprehension and critical thinking skills as they learn to search for clues and symbolism in the stories they read.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.
Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or name the book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the opinion, and provide some sense of closure.
With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
With guidance and support from adults, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed.
Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events in the order in which they occurred, and provide a reaction to what happened.
