Basic Reading Comprehension
Is your first grader full of questions? Most children are! With this activity, your child can ask away and develop some important reading and comprehension skills while he's at it.
A vital goal for first grade reading is the ability not just to decode text but to make real sense of it. Your child may be able to string sounds together, but what about plot points? Can he keep all those characters straight, and follow what’s happening?
Here’s an activity that teachers use all the time, and it works at home, too! It’s simple and easy to set up, but it can lead to some very deep and complicated thinking, helping to develop those comprehension skills … just the ticket for your budding reader.
