The aim of Comprehension Questions for 4 Year olds is to train parents and teachers to ask developmentally appropriate questions and to evaluate the quality of a child’s oral answer. If an insufficient answer is provided by a child, there are examples of how to assist the child to answer the question specifically with sufficient information. From 4 Years Old, students should love engaging with their peers and adults. Therefore, the ability to understand questions is critical for participation in social interactions and success across all curriculum areas. Comprehension Questions for 4 Year Olds has been developed as an essential resource for Oral Language Development. At this age, questions become more complex with the child required to understand or comment on the attributes which may not be obvious, to make predictions and sequence information. For example: What is this part used for? What happened next? How did you feel? How did you make it?
Designed by Speech Pathologists for teachers and parents for use in schools, daycare and in the home this program provides 4 year olds with:
- Lists of developmentally appropriate picture books and comprehension questions.
Samples of 4 year old age-appropriate answers and samples of inadequate 4 year old answers.
- Techniques and strategies to implement when a child provides an inadequate answer.
- An instruction booklet that outlines how the resource can be presented to a whole class, small groups or individual home setting.
- Each card reminds the importance of repeated reading of picture books and outlines a collection of questions to be asked on day 1, then further questions to be asked on days 2, 3 and 4.
- 41 cards that model appropriate questions and responses for the books listed in Recommended Books For 4 Year Olds such as ‘Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas’, ‘Possum Goes to School’, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, and the ‘Wonky Donkey’.
- The questions focus primarily upon Blank (level 2 and 3 questions).
