A home or school picture book program for 4 Year Old students.
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 engagingÂ 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.
