STRATEGY: Monitor Comprehension

  • When you monitor comprehension, you stop to check your understanding before reading on

  • When something in the text confuses you, you use these strategies to figure it out:

    • Reread

    • Read ahead

    • Ask questions

    • Visualize

    • Adjust your reading rate

    • Ask for help


SKILL: Evaluate Author’s Purpose

  • Author’s write for 3 main reasons:

  • Entertain

  • Inform

  • Persuade

  • Identifying the author’s purpose, helps you figure out how you should read a selection.

    • Example: if you read nonfiction that contains a lot of details, you read slowly so you can understand and remember the information.


  • PREVIEW & PREDICT

    When I say “Go”, take 1 minute to preview the illustrations.

    Ask yourself:

    • What do you think a mother tiger does?

      On your index card, write your predictions. After we listen to the selection, we will see if your questions were answered.
