These guesses are based on events that happen in the story. Authors often write stories in which the reader has to draw his or her own conclusions based on what is stated in the passage. This is an important skill for your child to learn. It encourages him or her to think about, and better understand, what he or she is reading.</p> <p>Reading in the Home, on the Go, and for the Fun of It DIRECTIONS: Have your child read the story A Bike Ride to you. Talk about the story with him or her. Talk about things that are not stated in the story, for example, how the characters might feel, parts of the setting that are not stated, and events that could have happened. Then read the first statement on the Drawing Conclusions about the Story activity page to your child. Have your child follow the instructions. Read the rest of the statements to your child. Have him or her complete the activity.

Rex jumped back on his bike and rode away. He got home just in time. He was glad he did not get wet.</p> <p>Grade 1 Draw Conclusions</p> <p> 2004 Evans Newton Incorporated</p> <p>3Last printed 7/13/04</p> <p>Parent Assiisted Learniing Parent Ass sted Learn ng Drawing Conclusions about the StoryColor the picture that best shows how Rex probably felt about seeing his friends at the park.</p> <p>Draw a picture of what the weather was probably like at the beginning of the story.</p> <p>Grade 1 Draw Conclusions</p> <p> 2004 Evans Newton Incorporated</p> <p>4Last printed 7/13/04</p> <p>Parent Assiisted Learniing Parent Ass sted Learn ng Drawing Conclusions about the Story(continued)</p> <p>Draw a picture of how Mike and Tom probably felt about playing ball with Rex.</p> <p>Circle the picture that best shows what most likely happened after Rex got home.</p> <p>Grade 1 Draw Conclusions</p> <p> 2004 Evans Newton Incorporated</p> <p>5Last printed 7/13/04</p> <p>Parent Assiisted Learniing Parent Ass sted Learn ng</p> <p>The Back PageTalk about ItParent Ask your child the following questions: What does it mean to draw conclusions?
