Story Boards
Purpose:  to work with story structure for comprehension.

Rationale;  As students see organization and relationships between story parts, they then have more comprehension and are able to make inferences.

    1.  Using paper, have students fold the paper into three sections.
    2.  In each section of the paper, have the students draw pictures of the beginning, middle, and end.
    3.  The students then write sentences about each picture they have drawn, describing what it is about.
    4.  The students then share their story boards.

Strengths:  Students get more practice at identifying the beginning, middle, and end of a story.

Weaknesses:   ???
