Please read this with your child and ask them simple questions like, “What are some important details from the story?” and “How does the story end?” You can also add questions about the characters or setting as you read. It is meant to be brief (10 min). On the reverse side is a read-aloud that you can read along with your child. You take a part and he/she takes a part. Students read aloud for fluency (expression, smoothness and pacing).
