Reading At Home

How do I read to my child at home?

  • Set a time when you will read to your child. Show them it is important. Make it special
  • Read in different voices – show them reading is fun!
  • Re-read favourite stories so children can begin to join in
  • Discuss the pictures and the front cover
  • Ask questions as you read


How do I listen to my child read?

  • Read everyday. 10 minutes a day is better than 1 long session.
  • Give them time to decode words.
  • Remind them to sound it out and draw attention to the pictures to help them
  • Praise them for trying – it doesn’t have to be perfect
  • Play games
