Continuing with our 2010 goal to provide you with 365 days of learning activities from our “Home Preschool Curriculum” developed by Fran Wisniewski and Diane Flynn Keith for, here is the post for Day 20…

Remember, these are learning activities that should only be done if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn.

~ Short Story Q&A ~

Read short stories to your child. You’ll find wonderful FREE audio stories online at  Talk to your child about the stories you read and ask them questions about what they liked and didn’t like about it. For example:

  • Ask your child about the characters in the story; did they do the right thing? Ask them what they would have done if they were in that situation.
  • Ask your child about where the story took place. Would they go there? Have they ever been someplace like that before?
  • Ask your child what they remember most about the story.
