Questions to Ask When Your Child is Stuck

When your child is stuck on a word, the easiest thing to do is just tell him or her the word. Unfortunately, this is not the best thing for your child. Your child is being taught to look for what looks right, sounds right, and make sense. Here are some questions to help your child figure out the word on his or her own.

  • What does the word start with?
  • What would make sense in this sentence?
  • Look at the picture--what would make sense and start with that sound?
  • What would you say here? Could that word fit here with this letter?
