Welcome to Language Arts!

Team 6-2

2018-2019

To help your child with reading comprehension and intellectual/emotional growth, parents should frequently and consistently listen to your child read aloud. During this time, you should pause and converse with your child. If your child is a reluctant reader, you can take turns reading. Some questions you can ask are:

What kind of personality does the main character have?

Would you want to be friends with the main character? Why or why not?

What problem does the main character have?

How well do you think the main character is handling their problem? What would you do?

What do you think will happen next and why?

What is the setting of the book or the chapter in the book that you are reading? How is the setting affecting the main character's problem? Is it preventing them from solving the problem?

How does the main character treat other people? Give an example. How do other people treat the main character? Do you think they are acting right? Why or why not?

What do you think could have prevented the main character's conflict? Give a detailed example.

What types of imagery in this book really captures your attention?

How do you feel right now when you are reading this book-- what mood is the author creating? What words/descriptions does the author use to make you feel this mood?

What lesson can you learn from the main character's or other character's actions?

What other story or real life event does this story remind you of and why?

*Reminder - Students are always expected to have a DEAR (drop everything and read) book, which is a novel or literary non-fiction book of their choice, and students are to read for 30 minutes per night. We will have various book projects, usually one book project per six weeks. This book project must be completed using information from students' DEAR books. We will provide more information regarding expectations for book projects at a later date.
