Just wondering when reading comprehension happens. While reading stories to DD (4 yo), I'll stop during the story to ask questions - and she has no idea the answer to the question.
For example: reading a story about a skunk who went looking for something to eat. He first went to the berry patch, but the berries were too green and bitter, so he wandered over to the picnic area to see if there was anything left in a trashcan. When I ask her where he went first, her first guess is I don't know, when I re-read the passage and ask her again, she guesses the picnic area. I've re-read the passage up to 4 times before giving up and going on.
Should she be able to grasp this yet, or do I need to table it for now and just drone on?
Note: Her favorite books are Mo Willems books and this is one of our first attempts at reading simple chapter books. Each night we re-cap what we've read up until our current selection, but I'm only asking questions about what we read that night.
