Tips for reading at home:

  1. Read for 10 minutes each night with your child.
  2. Discuss the illustrations on the cover/ pages. What do they think is happening?
  3. Predict what may happen in the story/ on the next page.
  4. Talk about who the characters in the story are, and where it is set.
  5. Ask your child how they think a character is feeling at various points in the story.
  6. Recap what happened in the book; can your child sequence the events? 
  7. Discuss whether your child enjoyed the story or not, and why.
  8. Be guided by your child’s interests- read quality texts from home/ the library as well as school books.
  9. Become an explorer- read fact, fiction, rhymes, poems, picture books.
  10. Most important, read to your child; it really does make the world of difference.
