Long/short story comprehension skill

Hi everyone. I just tested my son with story comprehension as well as vocablary.

He scored 100% wth vocab, not the best for story comprehension.

I suspect what's happening is he is not paying enough attention when it comes to reading the entire story, then finding the best answer.

Do you have any recommendation for reading comprehension exercise to help him with focus and finding answers within the story? (Grade level 4) Thanks.

I am reading the questons and answers and startng to think perhaps it was the way test was presented. there were couple of stories to read and answer, and he did well with all, except for one of the stories, I thnk that was one confusing. Maybe there is no need to buy expensive book to do the drill, but cheap book or free printable or something like that will be really nice....

In a conversational manner, I ask my DD questions about what we just read regardless of length. If she can't remember, we will go back and look at the pages and reread them. It's fairly informal but I find that she is now starting to pick up on details without my prompting.

Thanks cbreeding. I do the same thing too and my son answers well most of the time. I wll continue to do that. I think big part of it is that either he is not paying close attention or it was just that particular story question that was confusing.
