I receive lots of questions about reading comprehension. Parents wonder whether their child is comprehending books. One of the easiest ways to assess your child’s understanding of a book is to have a conversation about the book. It sounds almost too simple, doesn’t it? Well, it works!
But what happens when you can’t get the conversation rolling? I’ve been there, too. You aren’t alone!
When I was little, I loved making fortune tellers. (Some people call them cootie catchers, but I have always called them fortune tellers.)
I thought a read-aloud fortune teller would be a fun way to fuel conversations about books. It’s a hands-on, fun, and non-intimidating way to spark conversation.
Talking about books can be fun, especially when you add some play and a snack! If you are looking to fuel conversation in a fun, low-key way, print this fortune teller, cut out the square, fold as required, and play!
