Product Description
I give this sheet to my students before and after each story or journey's story that we read. It gets them thinking about the story, predicting, visualizing, and activating prior knowledge. There are 10 questions for the pre-reading and 12 questions for the post reading. This can be modified each time. For example, today we will only do #'s 1-3, etc.

This is partially based off of Journey's stories as each one has a target skill. This can be changed to whatever skill you want them to accomplish that week with the story.

This sheet could be done individually, in small groups, or whole group. I scaffolded and guided them the first time we did this sheet. They now get it in their groups and know exactly what to do.

This pre-reading and post-reading strategy sheet can work with almost any story. I sometimes modify it if needed for each story.

The children love working in groups to complete each side and is great study review as they have to go through the whole story again. Test scores went way up!
