In a previous post, you learned that to help your child become a better writer, you need to encourage them to read more. However, if you notice that your child could use a helping hand with their reading comprehension skills as well, you can follow the tips below to assist them in improving on it.

Help Create a Reading Habit

As you know, the more you do something, the better you become at it (practice makes perfect), which is why you should encourage your child to read more often. You can provide books that speak to their interests, age, and reading level so they feel motivated to start.

Provide a Reading Nook

Where your child reads is also important in determining how effective their reading sessions will be. By providing a comfortable space with enough lighting, and free of distractions, they’ll be able to stay focused on what they’re reading.

Encourage Them to Take Notes

Taking notes is a great way to ensure that your child will be following what they’re reading. By noting important characters, information, and/or plot points, they’ll be more connected to their reading material.

Give Them a Dictionary

It’s difficult to understand a text when you don’t know what some of the words in it mean. Give your child a dictionary so they can improve their reading comprehension, as well as increase their vocabulary.

Help Them Research the Topics

It’s easier to understand a story or text when you know the context in which it is developing. This is why you should motivate and help your child research the topics and concepts discussed in their reading material.

Employ Different Reading Tactics

Re-reading a sentence or paragraph until it’s clear, or reading out loud, can make a huge difference in your child’s understanding of a text. These reading tactics can help them become a better reader, so make sure they practice them.

Discuss Their Reading Material

Sharing your opinions on a book, and hearing someone else’s perspective, can result in a much more dynamic, fun, and enriching reading experience. Have conversations with your child about what they’re reading so they can reap these benefits.
