Henry's teacher, Mrs. Amanda Anderson, visited Henry's Corner to share strategies for parents to help their kids understand what they read.
Ask your child to make predictions about what they think will happen in the story. Making predictions helps them analyze the information they are reading.
Ask your child questions about the events in the book. This will help focus their attention on what they are reading.
Talk about how the events in the story connect with your child's life.
Henry recommends Knuffle Bunny Too by Mo Willems, I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt, and Junie B. Jones' collection of chapter books.
