Supporting Young Readers - How Parents Can Help Reading is important

It is important for children to practice reading at home so they can become better readers. How can parents support their child's reading at home?

  • Read aloud to your child.
  • Find a comfortable spot where you can sit side by side and your child can see the pages.
  • Read a variety of reading material; stories, poems, information books, magazines, etc.
  • Stop at interesting parts and ask your child to guess what will happen next.
  • Ask your child to retell the story to you, starting with the beginning, through the middle, to the end.
  • Discuss any interesting or new words that you may come across in the text.
  • If the book is an information book, discuss what you learned.
  • Take turns reading to each other. You read one page then tour child reads the next and so on. You can model good reading to your child and have fun!
  • Reread favourite books together or ask your child to read them to you.
  • Offer regular praise and encouragement.
  • Visit the public library with your child to borrow books.
  • Visit your local bookstores and browse for books with your child. If possible, purchase books to add to your child's own collection.
