4. Watching TV and/or Movies

a. What a great way to reinforce reading schedules! Userepparttar TV Guide or newspaper for these answers. What starts on Tuesday at 8 PM on channel 4? When does that show end? b. Tell your childrepparttar 140709 name of a show that you watch on Friday. Userepparttar 140710 schedule to findrepparttar 140711 channel and time it starts. Try naming a program your child does not watch so he will not automatically knowrepparttar 140712 answer. c. If you are allowed to watch only one TV show, but there are two you would like to see, what will berepparttar 140713 criteria for which one you choose? Reinforce critical thinking! d. Readrepparttar 140714 description of a particular episode. Can you determine if it will be funny or scary? What will make you decide if you are going to watch it? e. Atrepparttar 140715 beginning ofrepparttar 140716 show, predictrepparttar 140717 outcome. Atrepparttar 140718 end, were you right? During a commercial, ask your child to predict what will happen inrepparttar 140719 next scene. f. Practice summarizing by writing or telling a synopsis ofrepparttar 140720 show when it is over. Make sure to answerrepparttar 140721 who, what, where, when, and why questions. g. Describe, in detail, a particular character. How would you change him?

Rather than having a 30-minute lesson, questions should be sprinkled throughoutrepparttar 140722 day, especially inrepparttar 140723 summer and on vacation! This will keep your children on their toes but not bore them!

I hope these ideas have been useful and have inspired your own creativity.
