  • 4. STRATEGY: Summarize
    • A summary is a short statement of the most important events in a story.
    • When you summarize, you tell the most important events in the order they happened (in sequence.)
    • Summarizing helps you understand and remember what you have read because you have to re-tell the story in your own words!
  • 5. SKILL: Sequence
    • In a fiction story, sequence is the order in which events happen.
    • Signal words and phrases, such as first, next, then, last, later , and after , help you figure out when the events take place.
    • If there are no signal words, you must use story and picture clues to figure out the sequence of event.
  • 6. PREVIEW & PREDICT
    • When I say “Go”, take 1 minute to preview the illustrations.
