Helping your child develop reading comprehension skills is critical to his or her success in school. You can help your child develop these important skills through the lessons in this book and the suggestions below:
Context Clues: When you hear a new word on the TV or the radio, ask your child to guess what it may mean, based on the context in which you heard it.
Sequence: Cut up a three- or four-panel newspaper cartoon. Ask your child to arrange the pictures in an order that makes sense. Have him or her retell the story using the clue words first, next, then, and last or finally.
Cause and Effect: While watching a video, pause it occasionally and ask, “What happened?” and “Why did that happen?”
Drawing Conclusions: When your child misplaces something, prompt him or her with clues such as “Where did you see it last?” or “Who else might have used it?” Help him or her draw a conclusion about where the missing item may be now.
Realism and fantasy: Give your child two signs-one labeled R for realistic and the other labeled F for fantastic. Next, suggest various realistic or fantastic events such as “You will ride the bus to school tomorrow” or “We will climb a giant beanstalk to the clouds tonight.” Have him or her hold up the appropriate sign to describe the event. Then, switch roles.
Fact and Opinion: Occasionally, pause conversation at dinner and ask your child if what was just said was a fact or an opinion.
Classify: Ask your child to help with classifying jobs such as putting away the silverware in the appropriate parts of the silverware drawer or folding the clean clothes according to type of clothing.
Compare and Contrast: On walks with your child, ask him or her to point out how specific houses, cars, trees, or gardens are alike and how they are different.
Predict: Pause a video that you both are watching and ask your child to predict what might happen next. Then, verify the prediction.
Main Idea and Supporting Details: Supply your child with simple main ideas, and ask him or her to add supporting details. For example, you might say, “This movie was funny. Tell me what was funny about it.”
