Retell the story including a clear beginning, middle and end.
Make connections (think about how the story reminds you of something in your life or another book)
Identify the story or movie elements- character, setting, problem and solution.Make inferences....Ask why question and have your child find "evidence" from the story to answer.
After reading a non-fiction book.........
Write down key words to help you remember the main idea.
See if you can recall information by looking at the key information and text features.
Make a list of at least two facts you learned.
Each night the students will receive a math assignment on a worksheet or textbook page that reinforces concepts taught in class. Students should be able to work fairly independently.
