Can a crocodile really brush his teeth? To complete this 8-page mini-book, students pair text boxes to illustrations and then sequence the pages. Sequencing helps to develop key skills such as critical thinking, assessing story events, predicting, logic, and reading comprehension! Perfect for Dental Health Month!
Bind the mini-book pages with brass fasteners instead of staples. Then ask students to disassemble their books, mix up the pages, and sequence them again. If possible, change the stories so that events happen in a different order. Does the story still make sense? How might restructuring the events change the outcome of the story?
