Grace and the Time Machine Unit 2 Week 3
Genre -- Play A play has all the elements of a story – characters, setting, plot, and theme – but it doesnt look like a story because it is written to be performed.
Vocabulary Strategy -- Prefixes Sometimes when you are reading, you come to a word you do not know. See if the word has a prefix. Prefixes are letters added to the beginning of a word that change its meaning. * For example, the prefix re- means again. If you retie a knot, you tie it again. 1. Cover the prefix. 2. Look at the base word. See if you know what it means. 3. Add the meaning of the prefix. 4. Check to see if this meaning makes sense in the sentence.
Comprehension Skill – Draw Conclusions Facts and details are the small pieces of information in an article or story. Facts and details add up to a conclusion – a decision or opinion the author or the reader forms that must make sense. Facts and Details Conclusion
Comprehension Strategy – Answer Questions Good readers can support their conclusions with facts and details. If you are asked questions about conclusions you draw, you should answer them using the facts and details. Some answers are in the text in one place. Others are in the text but in different places.
