Sequence is the order in which events happen in a story. Look for time clue words to show sequence, such as first, next, then, and last. As you read, visualize the characters and what is happening to help keep track of the sequence of events.
All authors write from a particular point of view. When the first person point of view is used, the narrator is the character in the story who uses I or we. Authors may choose to tell a story in the first person in order to make the narrator more interesting. When a story is narrated in the first person, the reader does not always need to trust everything that the narrator says.
You can use a glossary or dictionary to find the meaning or unfamiliar words. Make a list of any unknown words you find as you read “Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday.” Then create a chart showing the unknown word and its glossary or dictionary definition.
Adverbs tell when, where, and how something happens. Some adverbs, such as quickly, refer to verbs, or action words. List six verbs, then brainstorm adverbs that might describe each. For example, the verb dance suggests adverbs such as wildly or slowly. You can use a thesaurus if needed for more ideas.
these plantes dont cost much These plants don’t cost much. we can give a flour to mom for her birth day We can give a flower to Mom for her birthday.
Endings can be added to base words. Some base words change when the endings –ed, -ing, -er, and –est are added. swim – swimming How did swim change when –ing was added?
save - saved How did save change when –ed was added? happy – happier – happiest How did happy change when –er and –est was added?
Some words with endings are easier to read when I figure out what the base word is. Sometimes I can just cover the ending to find the base word, but sometimes the base word was changed to add the ending. That’s when I remember the rules for adding endings.
Rules If a word ends with one consonant and one vowel, double the final consonant. If a word ends with silent e, drop the e. If a word ends with y, change y to i before adding –ed, -er, or –est.

Think about a time when you read quickly through a textbook or reading passage. What kind of information were you looking for? There are two ways to quickly find information while reading.
Skimming is a way to quickly find the main idea of a text. You can also skim a text to locate parts of interest. To skim, you might read titles, subtitles, subheadings, illustrations, and captions. Often the first sentence in each paragraph, or the first two or three paragraphs along with the last, will give you a good amount of information.
Scanning is when you look for certain words or ideas. Readers might scan a document to see if it is useful for a research project. Scanning can also help a reader determine which parts of a text to read in more detail.
