Reading: Parent Checklist


9 March 2018

It is so rewarding to see pupils enjoying all the facilities of our new library. We have many voracious readers; however, our work, as teachers and parents, is to encourage the reluctant readers to ‘get into books’.

Parent Checklist to Help Support Your Child

  1. I check that my child brings their book home daily.
  2. I listen to my child read daily (or check that my child is reading daily, if they are older).
  3. I find time to read to my child at least once a week.
  1. I ask my child questions about what they have read:
    1. Some of my questions are literal and can be found easily.
    2. Some of my questions are harder and my child has to ‘read between the lines (infer or deduce)

Facts:

  • Children who read daily will achieve a higher score in reading tests
  • Children who read daily will produce better quality writing.
