Pick a Card Game: For this activity, you will need index cards, markers, and books the children have previously read or heard. On each card, write the name of the title of a book your child is familiar with. Ask your child to pick a card. Once they have identified the title of the book on the card, ask them to find the book. Once they have reexamined the book you can ask them to do a variety of things. They can tell you about the story. You can discuss what happened in the story. Have them tell you who the characters were and what they did. Have your child identify the problem in the story. Discuss if the problem was solved, how it was solved, and who solved it. Using the same discussion questions from above, you can have them draw pictures related to the story or write about the stories previously read.
