    Can you all share your pre reading activities for grades 1 and 2? Thanks

    Here are some of the prereading activities I do with my first grade students:

    Narrative Text
    picture walk
    elicit background knowledge
    predict what the story's about using the cover and title
    point out one or two "tricky" words
    connect previous books to the new one (same author, subject, theme)
    remind emergent readers to use the initial consonant to check the picture (e.g. bunny or rabbit?)

    Expository Text
    connect previous books to the new one (same author, subject, theme)
    brainstorm words associated with the subject
    begin filling in KWL chart
    develop vocabulary
