Ask Questions as You Read

As you read together, ask your child leading, open-ended questions about the story. The best way to foster reading-comprehension skills is to ask questions and help her make connections and inferences. Helping your child link what is in the story to her own life, or to new ideas, promotes her understanding of stories in general.
