Practice this Comprehension Strategy-Take a Picture Walk:

How Do Dinosaurs Go to School is a great book for taking a picture walk. Before you read, flip through the pages with your reader and ask what they’re seeing on each page. Do they recognize types of dinosaurs, do they recognize things from their own schoolyard and classroom, what do they think might be happening? By engaging with the book before reading they’ll develop a deeper connection to the overall experience. You’ll love laughing along as dinosaurs are put into everyday situations!

Do this with your child:

After you read How Do Dinosaurs Go to School talk with your reader about their favorite parts of the story. Ask them what other things it might be silly to see a dinosaur doing. Have them draw a picture of their favorite silly dino scenario.
