Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Cause and Effect Relationships - Section 6: Cause and Effect - Time to Go Home - Independent Practice


     I've had other teachers ask me, "What do you do when a student just doesn't get it?"  Sometimes students come to us missing skills, or struggling in reading comprehension skills for various reasons.  One thing I've found to help students who struggle with cause and effect is to show them that they deal with cause and effect relationships on a daily basis.   I usually ask students questions about their own lives.  I ask them, "What happens when you go to bed real late and you have to get up for school in the morning?  What happens if you don't eat breakfast before you go to school?  I also found an article that will give you some ideas of relating the skill of cause and effect to student's lives.  It's a short article and an easy read.  Just click here .  I know that if I ever have students really struggling with this skill, I can easily implement some of these ideas in a center and help students strengthen this important reading comprehension skill.
