Help! I Need Advice: Reading Response Exercise #73

Read:

Read for at least twenty to thirty minutes.

Reflect:

Think about what you have read.

Write:

Imagine your protagonist is a newspaper advice columnist. Write a letter from someone requesting advice then write your character/columnist’s response. The advice given should reflect the protagonist’s values and experiences in the novel so far. How does your “advice” do so?

Discuss:

Share and discuss your responses with your reading partners.

Preschool Literacy:

Read:

Read a picture book with your preschooler.

Ask:

Mid-three-quarters of the way through, stop and ask your preschooler what kinds of problems the main character is having and how he or she would solve them.

Discuss:

Have a good conversation about your child’s ideas then finish enjoying the story together.
