Making connections is a very important skill to acquire and perfect. The Treasure is a great story for students to connect to. The storyboard example below includes only one connection, but students will make three types of connections: text to text, text to world, and text to self.
TEXT TO SELF
Text: Isaac has a reoccurring dream where a voice tells him to go to the city and look for treasure.
Self: I once had a dream about finding treasure and becoming rich.
