Realistic fiction tells about made-up events that could happen in real life. The comprehension strategy we will be focusing on this week is cause and effect. Cause is why something happens and effect is what happens. The vocabulary words for this week are shrugs, mumbles, P.M., complain, annoy, and signature.
