From the Title I Team
At GES, our Learning Compact and Plan includes goals for student achievement. This section of the Paw Prints will be used to share information parents can use to support their children in achieving the goals. We hope that this information is helpful to you!
GES Goal: To talk to your child about what they read
In previous Paw Prints, we featured reading comprehension questions for Thinking within the Text, designed to help students think about the story itself. Now we’ll focus on questions for Thinking Beyond the Text,
which help students think about things that are not directly stated in the book. Here are some examples:
These questions give you a start for a book conversation that will help to deepen your child’s understanding of the story. Once you ask a question or two, your child might have his or her own questions to discuss, and that’s great! Allow the book discussion with your child to evolve naturally.
