Home Reading

Have you wondered about how to best support your child with home reading? Have you worried about what to say and do? This ‘Reading Together’ video is aimed at giving parents some ideas about some effective strategies to use when listening and reading together with your child at home.

The first and most important reason to read together is to share and enjoy a book, to chat about what you read, explore the events and characters or the facts and information. It is not essential that the book be a levelled school book. It can be ANY reading material that you share together. If the child can read it easily by themselves, then listen and share the thinking about the story or information. If it has some level of difficulty, then share it and read together. If it is too difficult for the child to read alone then read it to them.
