Allow a student to work with a partner while acting out the activity.
During random reporting, allow students to talk with a partner if they are unable to answer correctly.
Display the words "author" and "illustrator" and place a picture clue beside them as vocabulary words.
If students are unable to write independently, allow them to dictate the story and add illustrations.

Discuss this concept further by identifying the author's purpose of writing the story. Have the students hypothesize why the author wanted to write a story like the one chosen. Do the same with analyzing the purpose behind the illustrator's pictures.
Provide students with text and allow them to illustrate, focusing on the relationship between the pictures and words or provide the illustrations and have students write a story to go with the pictures.
Repeat the lesson using informational text.
