Reading at home with your children is vitally important for aiding their journey as readers and writers. It is a great way of supporting your children and the school.

Comprehension, understanding of what is being read, is just as important as being able to read the words.

Below is a booklet to help you with the types of questions that you should be asking your children in order to help with their comprehension skills.

Feel free to print it out and use it.

There are also some paper copies available at the front office if you prefer.

I hope that you find this useful.
