October Literacy & Learning News
There are three types of questions we can ask. Asking children literal questions, ones that can be answered by a sentence in the text is the first type. What type of plant is this? What did the charater just do?
The second type is called inferential questions. In these types of questions, a child has to use information from the book but also think beyond the words to ideas and experiences they can connect to the text. How did the character feel? Does that animal like what it is eating?
The third type of question is evaluative questions. In this type of question, children have to make a judgment and take a position about what is happening in the story. These types of questions help to build empathy and perspective. Children can improve communication skills and tell their own stories. Did you think the character was nice? Why or why not? What would you do in that situation? Do you think that was a good thing? Explain why?
