Tip #2 Post reading discussion questions

Here’s a way to see if your child or student understood the story (and was paying attention). After you’ve read the story, come up with a few questions you can ask your child or student to get them thinking about what they just heard. Using “Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa” again, here are a few of the post discussion questions in the teacher’s guide:

* Why do you think Mori is so sad?
* Would you be sad if your friends didn’t wish you a Happy Birthday?
* What animals are hiding in Mori’s exhibit?

Okay, your turn. See what you can come up with.

See you tomorrow with another fun and easy tip to take Books beyond reading.

This can apply to adults also when we discuss books with each other.

Great post!

Thank you all for stopping by.
Shari, your support is always appreciated.
Christina thank you, I think it is too, but then I'm prejudice.
Morgan you're right. Actually there will be several ideas that can be used with adult books as well, depending on how much of your inner child is free to romp about.
Adonya, I'm glad I could add to your list of things you can do to take books beyond reading.
