Top Tips for Reading with your child

  • Make reading enjoyable, in a comfortable and quiet environment.
  • Show that you enjoy reading too – be a good role model.
  • Choose texts that your child will be interested in for example; non- fiction books about topics they are interested in, instructions for games, recipes or comics. Reading does not have to be limited to school books.
  • Make reading sessions short but frequent.
  • Look at the title, author and illustrator.
  • Read the blurb at the back of the book.
  • Encourage them to use phonics to build up unknown words.
  • Talk about the books to encourage them to think about what they are reading.
  • Make sure they are successful at reading – maybe take turns at reading pages to help
  • Give them time and support to make corrections when they make mistakes.
