One Strategy for Answering Questions about a Non-Fiction Passage


Have your child read the question. Then cover up the answers choices. Have your child tell you the answer in his/her own words. Then, uncover the answer choices and have your child find the answer choice that best matches his own answer. This will cut down on the confusion of answering questions with answer choices that are sometimes tricky. Your child will already know the answer he/she is looking for.
