Reading plays a vital role in your child’s learning development. In our classrooms, children are learning different strategies/habits to read and solve hard words. It is also very important to talk with your child about what she/he is reading. The following are some questions you may want to use with your child while discussing books:
1.Predict what the story is about before reading and then check the predictions.
2.Who is the character in your story?”
3.How does the character feel? Why?
4.What does the character look and what she/he/it does?
5.What is a setting (place) in this story? How do you know?
6.When does the story take place? How do you know?
7.What is a problem in the story?
8.What is or could be a solution?
9.What does this story remind you of?
10.What is your story about? Tell me more…
11.What happened in the story? (First, Next, Then, Last or In the beginning, In the middle, In the end)
12.Would you recommend this story to your friend? (Yes/No) why?
13.How is this book similar/different from another book (name a book) you read?
