This Introduce: Cause and Effect lesson plan also includes:
Introduce beginning readers to cause and effect in a story by exploring it together. Learners make predictions about a book based on its cover, title, and a brief flip through the pages. They listen to an explanation of cause and effect before applying these ideas to a book you read together. Encourage them to notice key words such as because, so, or as a result. As they listen, learners share causes and effects they hear in the story, and you write them on a large chart. Use the finished list to connect causes and effects and explore relationships within the book.
