Additionally, the students might be busy, at the time, learning other skills like socializing or gaining more experiences in life to be able to use their own repertoire to make meaning of what they are reading in the future.

Sometimes children might have developed many narrative conventions, which allows them to infer the underlying themes. Therefore, they can predict what will happen in the story. These are important skills for children to develop. It will help them to develop a frame of reference for narrations, and they will be more able to tell or write a well-structured story.
