In past blog posts, you’ve learned how to encourage your child to read, and what kind of environment to create so they can read effectively. However, in order for your child to be a good reader, they should also work on their reading comprehension skills. If you’ve noticed that your child has a harder time with this, this post will go over a few tips you can use to help them become a better reader.

How to Help Your Child Become a Better Reader

Motivate Them to Read

If your child isn’t much of a reader, you should search for reading material that will interest them, and that suits their age and reading level. You can even join in to encourage them to read.

Provide the Right Environment

Distractions, poor lighting, uncomfortable furniture, etc. are all factors that can sway your child’s attention as they read, which is why you should provide the right environment for them to do so.

Note as They Go

Taking notes as you read can help you stay focus on the text and may even allow you to follow the story a lot better. Tell your child to take notes of names, dates or important plot points so they can understand the material better.

Hand Them a Dictionary

Knowing what the words you’re reading mean is also important. Make sure your child has a dictionary nearby so they can look up new words and expand their vocabulary as they read.

Read Out Loud

Sometimes, we may start skipping words, sentences or paragraphs when we read, which may lead to some confusion later on. Have your child read out loud to ensure that they are following the text perfectly.

Discuss

Lastly, discuss the reading material with your child. One of the most enriching and enjoyable things about reading is finding out what others think and getting new perspectives on the subject, so talk about it with your child.
