Learning Tips

(1)

The title page is the first important page in any book. This page lists the book’s title, author, publisher, city, and copyright date. To have your child become familiar with the title page of books. Have him/her look through about four to five books. The books should be examples of both fiction and nonfiction. Have your child to open to the title page in each book. Encourage your child to compare and contrast the title pages of each book.

(2)

Remind your child that the title is located on other parts of a book as well. The title of a book can also be found on the spine (side) or cover of the book.

(3)

The table of contents of a book shows the chapters, or parts of a book. This page shows the page number that each chapter or part begins on. Have your child find a book with a table of contents. Have your child pick a page number. Then using the table of contents, encourage your child to find the chapter in which the page belongs.

(4)

Children should understand that a table of contents shows information that is contained in that particular section. Have your child look at a box of cereal or a bag of jelly beans. Help them to understand that the cereal is the contents of the box or that the jelly beans are the contents of the bag.

(5)

There are more parts to a book than just the title page and table of contents. Have your child look at different nonfiction books. Other parts of a book your child might find include an index and a glossary. An index tells each page a certain topic or word can be found on within that book. The glossary gives definitions for highlighted vocabulary words found throughout the book.
