Connections help with students' comprehension of a story. We encourage students to make connections with stories they are reading at home as well. Below are some examples of questions that can be used to facilitate student connections at home:
What does this book remind you of?
Has something like this ever happened to you before?
How did you feel when you read this book?
Does this remind you of something that happened in another book?
How is this book different from other books you have read?
Does this character remind you of a character from another book you have read?
