Reading for pleasure is important for developing many skills, by reading about different characters and situations, readers can develop greater empathy and understanding towards others, for example, but how do we make our children who like to read?
What is the book to read?
A speed reading booklet is a valuable tool to help our children improve their fluency, their reading volume and at the same time their reading comprehension.
It consists of exercises and fragments of different readings with different levels of difficulty and selected specifically for the age of the reader at which they are aimed with the aim of improving children’s reading comprehension.
These exercises usually include activities that increase vocabulary and improve readers’ grammar skills.
It is designed in a way that attracts children’s attention, making reading an enjoyable experience.
In addition, the reading of the booklets usually includes questions as well as exercises and through this, the ability to get important information can be checked and improved, or in other words, how to improve the reading comprehension of our son.
How to use a booklet to read with our child?
It is important to choose one that matches the reading level and age of our child.
After that, we must make a reading schedule every day, a specific reading time and a goal that can be a certain number of pages or a whole chapter, whatever we agree with our son or daughter can be good.
We can encourage our child to read aloud, as shown by the Andalusian School of Public Health, entrusted to the Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs of the Government of Andalusia.
Even if he is just reading, doing so will improve his fluency and pronunciation, among many other benefits.
To improve reading comprehension, it is very good that our child can comment on what he has read, with others around him or with us.
Sharing books and discussing readings with friends or family improves social connection and gives us points to discuss interesting topics.
What else can we do to get them to read?
One of the effective measures that we can implement, in addition to using the reading booklet, is to allow them to read books of their own choice and for that the nearest public library is always a great help.
Visit the library periodically, every fortnight for example, to borrow the books of their choice, to share the readings there, to enjoy the reading promotion activities they put on, to choose the books with them which they will read, to advise you. if you ask.
