What We Have Been Learning
Ask Your Child About

Talking with your child is the best way to support classroom learning. The following questions can help you get started.

  • What is the sacred V?  
  • Are all bacteria bad?  
  • What's the difference between molecules in a solid and a gas?

Ask your child about the characters in their book:

  • Who is the main character? What are they like?
  • What are some traits of the main character? Where did you find evidence of this in the story?
  • How has your character changed?
  • What is the problem the character is facing? 
  • How does your character add to the story?
  • Have you made a connection with any of the characters?

Your child should be reading for 30 minutes each day!
