A great way to introduce it in the beginning of the year and complete them together each day. Eventually, students will understand expectations and be able to independently complete the activities. Student will practice many different reading skills each week. Some of the skills include: making connections, questioning, story mapping, vocabulary (using a dictionary), and comprehension.
