  • Why reading with your child is so important

  • Reading aloud with your child
    so it makes sense that you and your child should choose these books together If you have time look at some book lists go to the library or pop in to your local book shop Discuss what you are reading Before you read aloud with your child take a few minutes to review what you ve already read together Ask your child to summarise the plot so far or go back a few pages and reread them to jog your memories Taking turns This will depend on your child s reading ability but remember never let a child struggle or get bogged down Use your child s general reading level as a guide for how much of each page or book she should be reading It is better to let them read just a few lines just try and increase the amount they want to read over time remember lots of praise will always help If you come across a new word make sure you discuss what it means sometimes it s a good idea to look up new words in a dictionary but take care not to ruin the flow of the story Use different voices Children love to hear a story read theatrically Use different voices and or accents to signify different characters If your child is able to take turns reading aloud encourage him or her to make up their own voices or accents for each character Always ask questions As you read aloud with your child ask him or her questions about what is happening and what they think will happen next Not only do these questions allow you to quickly and easily check your child s comprehension of the story but it helps to keep them active and involved even when they are not reading

  • Questions teachers are often asked about reading
    to get your child interested in reading is to make sure you read both to him and for your own pleasure From the time they are born children love being read to You can never introduce books too early cloth and bath books are a great way to start sharing books with your child Personalised books are also a great way to get reluctant readers interested in books love2read books use an old teaching technique of combining photos and key words to engage children As they get older reading becomes an opportunity to learn about the world around them as well as a vehicle for dealing with their own concerns emotions and ideas Is my child dyslexic Just because your child mixes up letters don t jump to the conclusion that they must be dyslexic Many children confuse b and d or p q and g when they are first learning to read so if your child is mixing up those letters or their corresponding sounds it doesn t mean he or she is dyslexic However if there are other indicators of dyslexia such as the inability to connect sounds with letters or confusing the order of letters in a word your child may indeed have a learning disorder like dyslexia If that s the case take heart with time patience and special instructional methods most children can learn to read Does it matter that I don t like reading Children tend to emulate their parents so if you want your child to read you would be wise to pick up a book magazine or newspaper yourself on a regular basis Many adults were not taught how to enjoy reading so why not take this opportunity to discover the pleasure of reading for yourself I m not a qualified teacher

  • Developing children talking skills
    teach new words then build in lots of repetition and practice Build on what they say Build on what children know and say already to support them and to develop their language skills for example taking turns with babies adding words for toddlers adding phrases for older children and showing teens how to debate Talk about what children are interested in Children and young people are much more motivated to talk when it is about something they are interested in Ask an open question where the answer is not only yes or no Be careful with questions When adults use comments and prompts rather than questions children can join in more Show them the right way If children make mistakes it s best to repeat back what they say rather than tell them it s wrong Say it clearly with the right words so they can hear how things should sound Give children time Children need time to process what others have said work out what they are going to say and how they are going to say it Use facial expression to show you are listening and happy to wait Make learning language fun Play around with words make
