Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes. When you are done, think about what you have read then proceed to the following questions:
- 1. If you had to pick only one word to describe what you read and if that word had to be an actual word used in the passage you read, what would it be? Why?
- 2. What do you feel was the most important event, character, setting, feeling, or decision in the passage you read? Why?
Write down or discuss your responses with your reading friends.
For Pre-readers: Read a story together. When done, ask your child what he or she thought was the most important event in the story. Discuss it. After your preschooler has contributed her opinions, you can even contribute yours. Enjoy this conversation.
