Working with fiction is often a favorite part of language learning for kids. Help your child enter the world of fiction with our story starters, question and answer pages, sequence of event quizzes, and so much more. If you’re teaching fiction, we have resources, too. Whether they’re learning to read it or write it, we have just what you need to help your student out.
Unicorns, abominable snowmen, and a rainbow’s pot of gold spring to life from the pages of a book. Fiction delights the imagination, but reading fiction involves several skills. Our reading fiction help has got your student covered, whether they’re in first grade, high school, or anywhere in between. Basic skills in learning reading fiction include the five W’s (who, what, when, where, why, how), identifying the main idea, or learning story concepts through pictures. More advanced ways to teach reading fiction include stories that lack conclusions, comprehension questions, and discussing the writings of great authors. Reading fiction help is on the way! Learning reading fiction opens up a whole world of meaning and enrichment. Once your child is hooked, they can put what they learn into action and might even find their inner muse with our early writing resources.
