Jigsaw Reading

This is a reading activity that also promotes language awareness. Students have to analyse the language so as to be able to organize the frames into the original cartoon.
1. Make as many copies of the cartoon as necessary.
2. Cut the it up in frames.
3. Give a set to each pair/group.
4. Students work together to organize the frames.
5. Check their work.

Then have a class discussion:
a) What helped you identify the sequence of the story?
b) Which words were they?
c) Which words can you use to help you organize a sequence of events? Make a list of them.
d) Now write a story using these words to organize it.
