Storyboard Text

  • On the other hand, Stephanie's mother felt guilt for what she'd said to her daughter. She knew that she was wrong, for treating Steph on that way, that's why she called for a help from Stephanie's teacher.
  • Good morning Ms. Lauren, can I meet you at the school? I just want to ask for an advice on how I can help my daughter, stephanie, on her reading skills?
  • Thank you very much Ms. Lauren.
  • Oh, actually, I really want to talk to you about that matter. Okay, I will wait for you Mrs. Reyes.
  • Stephanie's mother went to the school to get some techniques or startegies from Ms. Lauren, to help her daughter to read effectively and efficiently.
  • Good morning Ms. Lauren.
  • Thank you for coming Mrs. Reyes.
  • Regarding with your concern about your child, I just want to share different strategies, to help her to develop her reading comprehension skills.
  • First, you can let her create "mind movies". You can help your child do this by reading aloud and describing the pictures she's seeing in her own imagination. Use all five senses and emotions.
  • Second, Show her how to make connections by sharing your own connections as you read aloud. Maybe the book mentioned places you’ve been together on vacation. Talk about your memories of those places. Invite your child to have a turn. 
  • Third, Pose questions that will spark your child’s curiosity as you read aloud. Frequently ask her, “What are you wondering?” Jot down those “wonderings” and then see how they turn out.
  • After that, invite your child to share her “mind movies.” Notice how they’re different from yours. You might even ask your child to draw what’s in her imagination.
  • Also, You can help your child with her reading skill by predicting what might happen in the story as you read aloud. For example, when you read, “Her eyes were red and her nose was runny,” your child can infer that she has a cold or allergies.
  • Lastly, monitor her comprehension. Ask her if she don't understand something. If so, let her to re-read (read aloud and slowly), look at the illustrations, and identify confusing words.
  • You can apply these strategies to improve her reading comprehension skills.
  • When you read a story with your child, you might download a “story element” organizer. You can use it to keep track of the main characters, where the story is taking place, and the problem and solution of the story. 
  • Stephanie's mother was enlightened by Ms. Lauren. Suddenly, she remembered something about Stephanie's "imaginary friend". She was a little bit worried about it, so she'd decided to consult it to Ms. Lauren.
  • Uhmm, can I ask something before I go? I just want to clarify if Stephanie's "imaginary friend" was harmful or not?
  • Of course, you're such a big help. 
  • Thank you Ms. Lauren for your wonderful advice.
  • Oh, you don't have to be worried about it. It is normal for a child to have an "imaginary friend". In fact, it means that she aleady starting to engage "imaginative play", which further develop her creativity.
  • It's an honor Mrs. Reyes. I'm just here, if you need my help.
  • Your welcome Mrs. Reyes., I hope that it could help.
  • Stephanie's mother immediately went home and look for her daughter. She found Steph on the living room and talk to her calmly and intensively, to say sorry about what happened.
  • Wow, It's great!
  • Steph, my daughter, i'm so sorry for what I'd said and the way I acted towards you. 
  • Alright, can we continue what we were reading a while ago? I've got new strategies to help you develop your reading skills.
  • It's okay mom, it was not only your fault, it was also my fault too. I'm so sorry mom for not appreciating your efforts and patience, just to teach me to read.
  • Whoa! I've also got too! My friend, Nicole, taught me to use my imagination to help me understand what I've read.
