Questions to ask to check comprehension
Hi! At Curriculum Night, I was asked how to check to make sure your child is understanding the book he/she is reading. Here are some questions you could ask:
--Where there any words you didn't know the meaning of?
--Where and when does the story take place?
--Who are the main characters? Tell me about them.
--Who is your favorite character? Why?
--Which part of the book do you like best?
--How do you feel about the end of the story?
--What do you remember most about the story?
--Do you think others would like to read this book? Why or why not?
--Would you read another book by this author? Why or why not?
These questions will give you a good idea of your child's comprehension of the book. Happy reading!!
