for Better Reading and Writing Skills
Read an excerpt of Monsters and Water Beasts and write your own ending.
- Learning to anticipate by questioning and seeking answers in the text is one of the primary keys to better reading skills.
- By writing his/her own ending and then comparing it to another person’s story (or the actual book) is one way to develop this skill.
- Further, picking up on context clues and incorporating them in their own writing requires close attention to detail and typically means reading the text more than once.
- These too develop better reading skills.
