Draw-Along

There are many great activities students can do as you read aloud. One that is popular with my students is “Draw-Along,” in which students draw small representations of what is happening in the plot as I read. They connect the plot pictures with arrows showing the appropriate sequencing. It’s important to model this activity for students before letting them go solo. I use a fairy tale or other common story to model, showing students that I am not looking for great artwork but rather a clear sequence. The idea is that students should be able to retell a chapter based on their drawings.
