UNRAAVEL is a method that we use to help us disect a particular story. In class, we sing the acronym for each letter, beginning in October. You child should be able to sing it with the first week! This is a great tool to use when students complete their fluency passages as homework. Below is an acronym for UNRAAVEL:
U: Underline the title
N: Now predict the passage
R: Run through and number
A: Are you reading the question?
A: Are important words circled?
V: Venture through the passage
L: Let the questions be answered!
