Sharing Books

Sharing Books

Ask your child about the books they are reading in school, and share something about the book you are reading. As children learn how to talk about books, their reading comprehension will improve.
Have students practise retelling stories. As students read in class make sure to give them time at the end of reading time to share their books with partners. Provide them with sentence starters like: "My book is called... It is about..." Be sure to tell them not to give away the ending in case their buddy wants to read it!
