1. Use clues from the text or illustrations to predict what the story is about or what will happen next.

2. Ask questions as you read.
I wonder...
Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?
Why do you think?

3. When you come to a tricky part during reading, ask yourself if what your are reading makes sense, sounds right, or looks right?
