after that, i will show a video about the elements of a fairy tale and have a little discussion if any of the students have ever read a fairy tale before .
before we start reading, i will explain to the students that " The Dragon Problem" is a story about who uses a clever idea to solve a problem. I will ask the students to read the first Paragraph and tell me who the main character is? and what does the author want us to know about him ( main character) ?
students will be reading the second paragraph. After they finish they will be paraphrasing the text, i will remind students that paraphrasing or restating the text in their own words helps to ensure that they understand what they are reading.
