Chalk Talk: Teaching Children How to Self-Monitor Their Reading
To help build children's confidence in reading, parents need to help children develop a type of automatic inner dialogue while reading. This can be demonstrated by asking some of these questions when the children are reading, either alone or together. Parents can ask about their thoughts on the story and why things happened in the plot. Also, asking about what parts the child liked best can give a sense of reading taste. Soon, the children will begin to ask themselves the questions automatically. They should ask themselves why they are reading a selection and what they expect to learn. Also how the material is is organized and what they already know about it. Finally, they need to determine if they need to vary their speed by their understanding of any new material.
