Reading with your child

Thursday 14 October 2010

The commitment of parents / carers to reading with their child at home is fantastic. It’s clear to see in the classroom that children are becoming more confident with a variety of different texts.

We now have a ‘Reading Basket‘ where your child can place their book if they feel they are ready for a new one.  If your child has finished reading the book given, however, I suggest that before they change their book they demonstrate to you a further understanding of the text by completing one of the following activities:

Also, remember that reading other texts, aside from reading books, is also very important. The children will benefit reading material that is in their everyday life. Books from the library, comics and even magazines are a great way for children to become accustomed to alternative texts.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and thank you for your support with your child’s reading.
