Learning Tips

(1)

There are usually three types of connections a child can make: speaker to self, speaker to text, or speaker to world. So if your child cannot make a personal connection with a speaker, ask them if what the speaker says reminds them of a book they’ve read or something they’ve learned about.

(2)

A child can make connections to their favorite television show. When you see something or hear about something that has happened in their favorite television show that you know has also happened to your child, ask them about it.

(3)

You can buy books that your child can relate to that will help them with making connections. For example, if they just lost a game in softball, you can find a book with a similar event to cheer them up. In addition, if you read the book together, this may make it easier for your child to open up to you about it.

(4)

You can take your child to a local library to hear an oral reading of a book. When the reading is finished, talk to your child about any connections they made with the book.

(5)

In fiction stories, students can use prior knowledge to make connections with the text by thinking about a time when they were in the same situation as a character in the story.
