• Continuing the learning at home is extremely important.  I encourage 20 minutes of reading each night.  Children can read to you, or you can read to them, as long as there is a balance.  It is also important to ask questions, ensuring that your child is understanding what is being read.  Here are some questions to ask while reading with your child at home:
     
     FICTION
    • Who is the main character of the story?  List 2 character traits and use text evidence to support you.
    • Who are the other characters in the story, what are their traits? Use text evidence to support you.
    • Where does the story take place?What is the setting?
    • What is the problem in the story?
    • How does the problem get solved? What is the solution?
    • How does the character feel? Why does he/she feel this way? 
    • Make a text-to-self, text-to-world, text-to-text connection
     NON-FICTION
    • What is the main idea? What are important details?
    • What did you learn about this topic?
    • Why do you think ____________ happened?
    • Make a text-to-self, text-to-world, text-to-text connection
    • Locate the table of contents, glossary, index, labels & headings
