Comprehension Strategies:

(Make reading for comprehension fun by printing out the dice outline and writing things in each box to do when done reading.  You could do a dice that has "ask" and "answer"; "character", "setting", "events"; or think up your own.  Use it to 'read and roll' through comprehension!)

-Complete to help understand what was read.


-Understand what was read.
