Being able to answer the questions who, what, when, where, why, and how, helps students with comprehension, retelling, and writing. I'm linking up with the Techie Turtle Teacher to share a cute video I found to introduce students to the W questions. In honor of Teacher Appreciation week, I've also updated my free "W" strategy graphic organizer.

Later I have students answer the questions with as a quick write or in a think-pair-share activity, and I have students retell the story to their partners.
With more advanced students, I can assign a text and tell them to answer the W questions to prepare for our discussion. I've even had some very advanced students use their answers to conduct a lesson like mine where they ask students which question their sentences answer.
You can grab this updated freebie at Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook. I would love it if you would show your appreciation by leaving some nice feedback or pinning this picture. Both of these sites are having fantastic sales this week!
I hope your special week is off to a spectacular beginning.
