DO STORYTELLING ON THE GO

Take turns adding to a story the two of you make up while riding in a car or bus. Either one of you could start. Try making the story funny or spooky. This will stretch the imagination and foster a love for stories. It’s fun, too! Go the extra mile and record them as an auditory file to save for the future or jot them down in a book.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8th – VOTING DAY

PLAY FAVORITES

What is our family’s favorite flavor of ice-cream? What is our favorite movie to watch together? What is our favorite bedtime story? Choose a question, or make up your own, that your child is excited about.

First, have your child predict or guess the answer to the question. Help her write down her prediction. “I think chocolate is our family’s favorite flavor of ice cream.” Then, have your child ask each member of the family for an answer. Have your child record the answers using a special Science Notebook or simply mark tally marks on paper. Finally, ask your child to compare her prediction to the actual answers.

Predicting is a beginning step to making inferences.  Children must think about the reasons why someone will choose a favorite and must use current observations and understanding of others to make predictions.  Have fun with having conversations with your child about his/her predictions.  (adapted from www.readingrockets.org)
