We are continuing our unit about If/then and looking closer at a book. We will be looking closely at our pictures to help us to understand the story better. One way to help with this to label some of the pictures in the story. This will give your child a chance to focus on what is important to the story.
Also, we begin to use the words "snap words" to also refer to our red words. We call them snap words because we want them to know the words in a snap. We can then use these words to help write sentences about our story as well. All of these techniques help to develop comprehension of the story for your story.
Continue to talk with your child about looking carefully at the cover, pointing under the words of the title and reading them, looking carefully at the whole picture and then telling the story to match that picture. Also, continue to ask your child what the characters are feeling.
Also, as your child is reading the text encourage them to point to each word as they read. We want them touching each word individually and not sliding their finger across. If they get stuck on a word, have them to look at the picture to get some clues as to what the text may say.
