Just like children learn to ride a bike by starting with training wheels, it takes practice to move up in reading. The best way to practice being a strong reader is by reading books that are just the right level.Children should read for 15-20 minutes each night. As your child reads, you can help him/her build comprehension skills by asking questions about the book. You can use this chart to help you come up with questions.Bronze = good questions (examples: "Who did...?" or "What is...?")Silver = better questions (examples: "What can...?" or "Where is...?")Gold = awesome higher-level thinking questions ("When might...?" or "Why did...?")Try to go for GOLD!
