-The CAFÉ strategy we worked on this week was
“Main idea and Supporting details”
How can you help your child with the strategies at home?
Talk with your child about the main idea of the stories you read. “What was this book mainly about?” Then talk about the details that support that idea.
For fiction books, that means talking about what happened in the beginning, middle, and end of the story. For informational text, that means what facts or information was given about the topic of the book.
