Now that summer camp is over for the kids we’ve decided to put Jacob in a weekly reading program for the next five weeks to improve his skills before school starts. Reading comprehension is a crucial reading skill that every child needs to develop. It is the process of understanding and interpreting text that has been read. As a parent, it can be difficult to watch your child struggle to understand what he or she is reading. If you want to improve your early reader’s reading comprehension, here are a number of tips that will help:
1) Provide your child with the right books.
You may want your child to improve reading comprehension, but you must first ensure that you are giving your child the proper books. Your child should be able to recognize and understand at least 90 percent of the words in the entire book without asking for any help. Having to stop constantly in order to ask questions will make it difficult for a young one to focus on the story as a whole and will take away his or her confidence.
