Activity for ages 3 to 8.
There are few things better than settling in with your kids to read a good book. The snuggles. The laughter. The “one more, pleeeeease.” It’s simply awesome.
While you’re sneaking in some good old fashioned bonding, storytime is also a great opportunity to work on kids’ reading comprehension – understanding what’s actually happening in stories.
But, if you’re like me, you might find yourself drawing a blank when you try to think of great reading comprehension questions. Maybe it’s the pressure to come up with something thought provoking… or maybe it’s the end of day exhaustion.
Whatever the reason, I’m excited to pass along something that I hope will help: a free printable of my 20 favorite questions to ask during storytime. Just print the list and keep it in your favorite reading spot. Then pick two or three different questions to ask each time you read together. Easy peasy.
