Open-ended Questions

We want our children to grow into critical thinkers because this is necessary for success in and beyond school. Adults can support the development of a child’s critical thinking skills by asking questions that don’t necessarily have a right or wrong answer. When sharing a book, you can ask your child to consider alternative endings or settings or characters to stimulate creative thinking. For example, “What if Goldilocks went into the home of three rabbits instead of three bears? What might be different about the story? What might be the same?” If you include “might” into the question you’re on the right track.
