Product Description
This activity uses the comprehension skill of predicting to make students use clues from the text to hypothesize what will happen next. Students love this lesson! And they love this story! This is a lesson where the story is read aloud, but as you are doing so, you stop six different times. All of the stopping points are provided in this document, as well as suggested questions and examples. It tells you exactly how to facilitate a great reading comprehension lesson!
It also provides a homework assignment, where students are asked to write an ending to the story (because you will have stopped with two pages of the story to go)!
The actual story is not included in this document. It can be found in Dahl's collection of short stories entitled "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More".
This document is in pdf format, but please email me if you would like it in Word format to edit.
