Recent feedback from a buyer: On March 21, 2016, Betsy T. said:
"I am using these with my fourth grade boys who are below grade level readers. They get so excited to find out what we are reading about each day."
The stories are:
1. Loch Ness Monster
3. Aladdin's Lamp
4. The Kraken
Step 1 Remembering : main idea-- The student has to answer 3 questions, from these three questions they will be able to tell you the main idea of the story by creating a phrase about the story based on the answers.
Step 2 Understanding details--will help your students learn how to describe 3 main details about the story.
Step 3 Applying--begins the higher level questioning, but the answers are still in the reading material.
Step 4 Analyzing--has the student identify a sequence or list of components that make up the story.
Step 5 Evaluating--uses a lot of inferring or predicting to answer the questions.
Step 6 Creating--has the student think about the topic in a new way or create a plan.
Step 7 Your Opinion--will have unique answers from each student for independent thinking.
