Tips for Reading with your Child
Make time to share books with your child. Listen to them read, listen to audio books together and try to chat about reading
Have a range of reading materials available - books, websites, magazines, newspapers, apps
Be a role model and show how reading can help you follow your interests
Read between the lines. Talk about what you have read to help your child understand what they have read in different ways. Talk about the issues/themes, are there other things happening underneath what the author is saying? What is the author not telling us?
Research things together. Use the internet, the library as well as books. Talk to them about what information they can find.
Questions to ask . . .
Have you read any other stories with a similar theme?
Have you read any other stories that have openings like this?
What makes you think that?
What words give you that impression?
Do you agree with . . . . . opinion?
What do you think the writer intended?
How has the author used . . . . (e.g. adjectives)
What do these words mean?
Why do you think the author chose to use those words?
Why do you think the author chose this setting?
What evidence is there to support your view?
What does the word . . . (e.g. slam) imply?
