I practice vocabulary each day we read the story with my students. The vocab match and clip cards are great for independent task boxes! Read this blog post on creating a task box system.

Sequencing

Leveled sequencing to retell the events of the story!

Sequencing is also included in the book companion. I do sequencing activities on the fourth day of reading a story after the students have had plenty of practice and exposure to the story and its events.

There are 3 levels of the sequencing activities to meet the needs of each of your students.

Comprehension

There are leveled comprehension pages for the story!

The last activity you can do with your students for Jabari Jumps is comprehension. I will typically complete comprehension with my students on Friday after a full week of reading the story. There are also 3 levels for comprehension to meet the needs of all students. Once we are finished with the story for the week, I store all the materials with the book in my monthly bin for repeated use.
