Practice this Comprehension Strategy-Making Connections:
As you’re reading Colors of Sports ask your child if they recognize any of the sports that they see on the pages. Have they ever played these sports? Have they seen someone else play? Do they have a favorite team? By asking questions that relate to your child’s experiences, you will be deepening their engagement with the book and hopefully furthering their interest in the text.
Do this with your child:
Colors of Sports explores several major sports and has a different color on every page. Ask your child to chose which color or sport is their favorite and why. Then draw a picture of their favorite sport together!
