Herringbone Strategy
This strategy is used after the reading to summarize the story. You fill the chart out with each of the details questions that are listed. It helps the students to think about main idea,significant details, and the relationships they have.
Explain a reading strategy and tell how to use it in a content area.

-journal summary entries created by the whole class.
-use of word cards containing key concepts
-carousel assessment involving scribes from upper grades
-verbal response sharing in pairs,small groups,or whole class
-student porfolios w/informal interviews

Conclusion of Charlotte's Web
At the conclusion of the story, charlotte had an egg sac that contained 514 eggs. She was proud of them but also sad because she did not think that she would live long enough to take care of them. Wilbur saw to it that the sac got back to the house because charlotte was not going to come for it. So he carried it in his mouth and took it back. Later that day charlotte died. In the spring the spider eggs hatched and there were three little spiders. Fern never came back to the barn again, but everyone else lived happily.
