We are focusing on asking and answering questions about key details in a text.
After I read the book, Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse we talked about the words, who, what, when, where, why, and how. Next, we made questions about the story using these words. Then we answered the questions by looking back in the text.
Everyone agreed that they could tell someone about this book very easily and it was because we made up questions, answered them from the text, and then wrote down the answers.
Reading groups will begin. On September 21. Please be sure to ask your child questions each night after they read to you. More information about reading expectations will come home on September 21.
