I spoke with the class today about some things that good readers do. When reading at home, you may wish to keep the consistency with what is being taught / learned here at school.
What story clues are in the title and the pictures?
Is this story real or make-believe? How do I know?
If this text is real, what will I learn?

Why do I want to read this story?
how do I picture the setting?
What will happen next in the story?
How do I feel about the main character?
Why does the character act or feel a certain way?
