So if you are a Highlights Magazine subscriber and your kiddos really enjoy the stories, use these stories as replacements for comprehension lessons in place of those boring stories in whichever lesson you are working on in language arts. If you are not a Highlights subscriber you can sign up here. (I do not make any type of commission off of your purchase, I just wanted to share this amazing resource that I use in my home education journey.)
So today these are questions for the story, Rising Above Slavery, by Linda Trice from the February 2019 edition of the Highlights Magazine, page 16. I forgot to mention in my last post, that you can either have your child read the story themselves or you can read it to them and either have them write the answers or tell you the answers. The choice is yours!
What works for me is to read a little bit and ask a question. If I read the story to my son to the end and then have him answer questions, he shuts down in frustration. Too much information at once gives him an overload, so I read a little bit and then ask the question. I personally don't mind if he just tells me the answers, but again, it is what works for your child.
Okay, here are the questions and the answer key. As always this is free. You can get the questions here.
