Our target comprehension skill is “understanding characters.” Students learn to infer, predict and understand ‘point of view’ as they read.
Literary Device: Hyperbole. Students learn how hyperbole helps make tall tales like, Stormalong, interesting and humorous. Students also learn to identify and interpret examples of simile, personification and metaphor.
Fluency: Expression. As students read aloud, we practice using an expressive, loud, clear voice.
