Parent Tip: When you listen to Miss Jacque reading aloud with Dial-A-Story, there are no pictures. But stories help us use our imaginations! Try out these activities to help build literacy and comprehension skills!

  • Listen carefully to the story.
    • Think about:
      • Who are the characters in the story?
      • What did they do?
      • Why did they do those things?
      • What happened first?
      • What happened next?
      • What happened at the end?
    • Talk about the story with your parents, grandparents, babysitter, friend, pet or anyone else who is listening with you!
  • Can you draw a picture of the characters or what happened in the story? 

(Did you draw a picture? Miss Jacque would love to see! You can snap a photo of your drawing and e-mail it to jstolz@urbandale.org.)
