Ask questions to help your children think about main idea, details, drawing conclusions, inference, predicting outcomes and character analysis. Ask questions that require a full sentence answer. Encourage your children to express themselves fully. Let them finish their own sentences. The better they express themselves verbally, the more fully they will answer questions in the classroom.

Use these question words in discussions with your children. Look for them when reading:

  • Why looking for reasons
  • Where looking for location or position
  • When looking for things concerned with time
  • How looking for way or method
  • Who centers on people or a particular person
  • What is of very little aid in narrowing the question being ask(could mean that which, how much, how or anything that)
