Our story this week was A Fox and a Kit. We did this labeling activity where the kids draw and label a fox. Then they write three facts they learned. We were going to finish it today but ran out of time. We'll finish it up on Monday.
The comprehension skill this week was 'the main idea' which I've always found a little hard to teach. My kids seem to have a hard time grasping this concept. I made this chart for The Big Blue Ox to try to help them find the main idea. They gave me lots of details but it took a while before one of them figured out the main idea. Oh well, I guess it will take a little time. Then we found the main idea for A Fox and a Kit.
