Tips: Read to your child 30mins a day. Ask Open-ended questions.

What is an open-ended question? Questions that have more than one right answer, or ones than can be answered in many ways, are called open‐ended questions. This way of asking questions stimulates more language use, acknowledges that there can be many solutions to one problem, affirms children’s ideas, and encourages creative thinking.

Here are examples on Open-ended questions

1. Looking at the cover, what do you think this book might be about?
2. What do you think will happen in the story?

3. Which character do you like the most and why?

4. How do you think that character is feeling?

5. What happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story?
6. What part of the story do you think you will remember the most?
7. What was your favorite part of the book?
