Clip to ScrapBook #5

Sorry, but I have to agree with yellowdaisies. This would not be appropriate for any of my first graders. Some would be able to regurgitate my words, but not really understand the concepts you mention. We studied the "Three Little Pigs" earlier in the year and talked about the important lessons we could learn from the pigs. After lots of practice, most are becoming pretty good at figuring out the central message or lesson of fairy tales, fables, and other stories. We also sometimes compare and contrast different versions of the same story, but the focus is mostly on the basic story elements. I want to build a strong foundation of literal comprehension in first grade to pave the way for more abstract concepts in the upper grades.
