The answer is right there in the text.

Can your child answer questions without referring to the story?

The answer is not in the story, it is your child’s opinion and thoughts.

  • If you were going to…
  • In your opinion…
  • Do you agree with………? Why?

We appreciate that some of the grammar terms that are being taught in schools now are unfamiliar to a good deal of us who were not taught these things during our own school days. This helpful resource should help with these definitions so that you can find it easier to support your child with any homework that they may bring home.
