Learning Tips

(1)

Sometimes children will cut their retellings short. If this is the case with your child, prompt them with open-ended questions. Was there anything else you want to add? What can you tell me about…?

(2)

Sometimes children will try very hard to remember every single detail about what was said when they retell, and then they will get frustrated and shut down. If this happens with your child, remind them that it’s more important that they remember the most important details and not every single detail. If possible, let them try again by replaying or rereading to them what you want them to retell.

(3)

Children will often retell, paraphrase, and explain to you what happens on their favorite television show. Encourage this as this develops great listening and speaking habits.

(4)

You can have your child practice paraphrasing at home. Read a couple of paragraphs orally to them, and then have them tell you what was read in their own words.

(5)

Paraphrasing is important when children write research reports. Help them with paraphrasing the information in their nonfiction texts.
