I am needing a little help interpreting this strategy for Kindergarteners. I’m thinking I could give my students (3) pictures placed in sequence. Then let the children make up their own story using the pictures. I guess the “connected” part of telling the story is what happens first, next and last. Let me know what you think this means! Thanks!






I think you have the right idea about the “telling a connected story”. Using the pictures would certainly a way to practice this. Also, if you think about the 3 ways to read a book, “read the pictures” is an excellent way to check this.
