What Else Can I Do To Help My Child To Read?

  • Read a variety of books (fiction, non-fiction, rhymes etc). 
  • Discuss the different features of various books. 
  • Talk about the books and other reading materials that you have shared.
  • Explain the meaning of new words. 

Most importantly, show the fun that can be gained by listening to stories and reading a range of texts (e.g. reading and then following a recipe together).

Don't forget you don't have to read just books!

Cereal packets, shopping lists, road signs, Web pages, magazines, newspapers etc. are all useful ways to practise reading.
