Reading with your child

Promoting reading at home is the most important way that you can help your child. Make sure your child has regular reading practice and check they understand what they read. Here are some more tips on helping your child with reading: 

  • when you read to your child, make the experience interactive - ask questions about the story, the pictures and what they think of the characters
  • as their reading skills grow, gradually let them turn the tables until they're reading to you
  • use dictionaries together for difficult words - a picture dictionary can make exploring language more interesting
  • enrol your child at the local library so they can try new books regularly
  • keep an eye out for the themes that catch your child's imagination at school - and help follow it up with more reading
  • when you come across an unusual or funny-sounding word, help your child find out what it means and write it on the fridge door with magnetic letters

As your child gets older encourage them to pick up other books around the house to boost familiarity with 'grown-up' language. Suggest a reading list, and encourage your child to write down thoughts on the books they have read.
