Reading Comprehension



Helping your child with reading

Reading is vital for your child’s development, whatever their age. Research shows that reading is the most important thing you can do to help your child’s education. It is most beneficial to read little and often, so try to put aside 15 minutes a day to show your child that you value and appreciate reading. It’s surprising how enthused children become when they see older siblings, parents and grandparents take pleasure in reading and engage in conversation about the contents of their books and any new vocabulary.

Remember, books aren’t just about reading the words on the page, they can also prompt exciting discussions, word games and liven your child’s (and your) imagination!
