Here are some ways to use them!
Print out page 1 and have your students read the story before, during, or after listening.
Print out page 2 and have your students find the errors in the text while listening. (Key on page 3)
Print out page 4 and have your students write or illustrate 6 true parts of the story and 3 imposter parts. They can cut out the events and trade with a partner to see if they can identify the imposter parts and order the scenes correctly. Or, they could use their illustrations as a guide to retell the story.
