Reading is a crucial ability that your child should master. Being able to comprehend what’s being read is key in communicating effectively with the world, which is why you should encourage your child to improve their reading comprehension skills. If you’d like to know a few ways to do it, The Tutoring Center in Roseville will share them with you in this post.

How to Improve in Reading Comprehension

  1. First, you need to pick the right reading material for your child. This means that it should be suitable for their reading level and age (with regards to vocabulary, grammar and topics). 
  2. You should also provide your child with a place to read. Put together a study space for them that’s well-lit and where they can ward off distractions and sit comfortably.
  3. Encourage your child to have a dictionary close by while reading to look up any words that they don’t understand. This will make comprehending the text easier and will expand their vocabulary.
  4. Moreover, tell them to take notes of what they reading. By documenting important information, plot points, names, and their thoughts, they’ll be able to follow what they’re reading. 
  5. Having some context on what’s being read can often expand your horizons and give you another perspective on the text. That’s why researching the topic can also be beneficial.
  6. Believe it or not, simply reading out loud can help you improve your comprehension. This is because when you do, you don’t skip words or jump to another paragraph.
  7. On that same note, make sure your child rereads a paragraph or sentence they don’t understand. If they move forward, the rest of the text may seem confusing.
  8. Finally, having your child discuss their thoughts and feelings about a text with others can open their mind to different ideas and perspectives, which can enrich their reading experience.
