Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child Understand What They Read
Reading comprehension is an important aspect of learning in school. You can help your child learn reading comprehension. First, find out if they are struggling with this aspect. Your child’s teacher is the best resource in regards to this. When talking to your child’s teacher, find out how they are doing in reading comprehension and what you can do to encourage them in this area. One thing you can do is encourage reading at home. If your child is reading but has difficulty understanding or processing thing information, make sure that the book is at his or her reading level. Then, ask them to read it aloud to you. Sometimes reading books allowed can help your child to understand the content better. Ask your child questions about the book read. Ask questions about what they anticipate in the book before ever reading it. Ask little questions throughout the reading to see if they are picking up on what is going on as it is read. At the end, ask some summary questions like, “what was this book about?” Small steps like these can be taken to help your child better understand what they read.
