See a movie together

Posted by

Help your Little learn more about reading interpretation by seeing a movie together that reflects readings the student will have to do in school.  There are, for example, several movie versions of most of the required Shakespeare reading in high schools.  Often seeing the film will make the actual reading easier, but be sure to emphasize that both approaches should be taken.  Help your Little to compare the interpretation in the movie with what is in the book.  Emphasize both that the movie may not contain everything the book does, and that some movies have additional atmospheric qualities that the book can not portray:  the Harry Potter movies are one good place to start.

    Sometimes it’s a good idea to ask your Little to write a paragraph on the day you had today and discuss it on the next outing. This way he get’s to reflect on what he got out of the day and the BIG can also see what he got out of the time. It’s also a great way to start conversation as you get together the next time!
