  • 📚 Why Read? Please read at least 45 minutes each and every day. 📚📚📚

     

    Reading can include: a book, a magazine, a newspaper, even watching a favorite television show with the closed captions on! 

     

    Some questions to ask after reading-

     

    For fiction:

    Who are the characters in the story? 
    Where does the story take place?

    Identify the problem and solution.

     

    Create an alternate ending.

     

    If possible, annotate the text by circling unknown vocabulary, underlining important parts, etc.

     

    Could the characters have come up with a better solution to the problem? How?

     

    How, if at all, did the characters change from the beginning of the story to the end of the story?

    What is the author's purpose in writing this text?

     

    Identify 3 pieces of information you learned from the text.

    *remember NO "because" in your claim! 😉

     

    Building your fluency, stamina and comprehension skills are so important to literacy.  Please take this time to retain and build upon your skills.
