Learning Tips

(1)

It is important to check your child is understanding what they are reading when they read at home.

(2)

One thing you can do is to ask open ended questions about what your child read at home. What did you just read about? What was your favorite part about what you just read? Can you tell me about the characters in your book?

(3)

If you want to ask more specific questions about what your child read, read along with them. Stop at points to ask questions about what was read. Why didn’t she go to the movies?

(4)

If you’re child cannot answer a specific comprehension question that you ask, have them look in the book. Always encourage them to reread to try to find the answer.

(5)

It’s important that students do not become discouraged when they do not know an answer by memory. Remind them that when they get tested the reading will always remain in front of them to refer to.
