• Help your child think about their reading!

     

     Throughout the year we will be teaching your child to think about the text on a deeper level.

       You can ask your child to (in the classroom we write these things on sticky notes; Your child may or may not want to do this at home also. However, doing these things orally is just as important!)

     

    • Use their schema before, during and after reading. Schema is everything you know!

       

    • Make a connection, text to self or text to text. Ask your child if it is a meaningful connection that helps them understand the story.

       

    • Make a mental image.

       

    • Write questions they may have before, during or after reading.

       

    • Find a theme of the story. (what the author wants us to know)

       

    • Infer. (How is a character feeling? What will happen next? Why did something happen?)
