    Be sure to read everyday!  Just 20 minutes a day can make a HUGE difference! Use the following prompts below to exercise your brain while you read. 

    Before Reading: Make predictions! What will this book/story be about? Look at the title and pictures. What do I already know about this topic?

    During Reading: Ask yourself questions! 1. How is the character feeling? 2. What do I think will happen next? 3. What have I learned so far? 4. Does this make sense?

    After Reading: What was the main idea or theme? What did I learn? Why did the author write this? What do I still want to know? 

    A Fun Activity After You Have Finished Reading: Create a poster, drawing, or project of what you have read about. Include the characters, setting, problem and solution in the story. If you're reading non-fiction, create a book cover to tell all about the book. Include interesting facts and pictures that you read about.
