Reading at Home with your K2 Child


·     Set up a quiet place to read (turn off TV/silence cell phone)

·     Select a book (see list of Amazing Authors on back)

·     Ask them “What do you notice on the front cover?” “What do you think the story will be about?”

·     While reading, ask if they see letters or words they know and define vocabulary words they don’t know

·     After the story ask questions about:

o  Who characters were

o  Where the setting of the story was

o  What the problem(s) was/were

o  How the characters felt

o  How the problem(s) was/were solved

o  When things happened (beginning/middle/end)
