Story Elements Anchor Chart. We are setting up a reading corner @ church. We give the kids the first :30 of our Bible Study (:90) time to finish their homework. This should help those who have to do book reports. We were blessed to receive 10 boxes of books from a teacher who was retiring and cleaned out her classroom.

Generating Questions Lesson: Create anchor chart, discuss how asking questions while reading keeps us engaged in the story and betters our comprehension. Next, we take a quick picture walk through a big book story, give each child a large sticky note and tell them to write a question they had about the story based on the pictures. Encourage students to start with the phrase, “I wonder if…”
Making predictions in a story is such an important element of imagination and comprehension for a student.

I have also implemented more predictions in literacy by doing a picture walk with the students.
