[PHOTO] First Graders Celebrate Thanksgiving & Improve Reading Skills

CLARK — First grade students in Miss Koddenberg’s literacy enrichment class at the Frank K. Hehnly School in Clark have been learning about the sequencing reading strategy. Pupils have learned that sequencing means to “put the story in order” and that it also helps with their reading comprehension.

This week, students celebrated Thanksgiving and improved their sequencing skills by being read a silly Thanksgiving book called “Turkey Trouble.” In the story, the turkey dresses up as other farm animals, such as a horse and cow, in order to hide from the farmer who wants to use him as the main course for the holiday. Once the story was finished, students then used the feathers of their turkey to draw pictures about what happened throughout the story in the order that it was read.
