Questions to assist with home reading
Talking about what you’ve just read together helps children think about what they’ve read, boosts their imagination and helps them grow in confidence. It’s also a good way to pick up on new words and check that they understand what they’ve read.
When reading at home with your child why not try:
• Getting your child to think of questions they
can ask you to test if you’ve been listening! This is a great way to check their understanding.
• Asking how they think a particular character
in a story might be feeling (you can look at
the faces in pictures to help them get started).
• Asking them to tell you what they would do if
they were in the story.
to happen next.
