Great questions to ask you 4th grader about their reading at home are:
- What kind of person is your character? How do you know?
- Do you like him/her? Why?
- Why did the character do that? Where could you see parts that led up to this?
- Why is the character feeling that way? Are there clues?
- Do you think he/she did the right thing? How does it compare to what another character might do?
- What do you think will happen next, based on what you know about the character so far?
