Every Question Counts!

There's more to literacy than just being able to read.CalvinPose_copy

A critical part of reading is learning how to think as you read.  The good news is, something as simple as asking your child questions can go a long way toward fueling this key literacy skill.

Before, during, or after your child reads a story, article or book, you can ask:

  • What was it about?
  • What do you think will happen next?
  • Does this make you wonder about other things?
  • What was your favorite part of the story?
  • What did you learn?
  • Did the characters change over time? If so, how?
  • What was the problem in the story?
  • What was the solution?

Summertime is a great time to position reading as a relaxed activity that can transform into fun for the whole family. Get more summer reading tips from Istation, including 4 things parents can do this summer to make teachers happy in the fall!
