Reading - Information for Parents

Reading to your child is one of the most important things you can do, no matter how old they are.

  • Be a role model. Let your child see you enjoying reading – whether it’s the newspaper, a magazine, a comic, a cook book or a novel.
  • When you are reading to your child, you can talk about words or ideas in the text that your child might not have come across before.
  • Children are often interested in new words and what they mean – encourage them to look them up in a dictionary
  • Have discussions together about books – read the books your child is reading.
  • Encourage Internet research about topics of interest – notice what they are keen on.
  • Make your home a reader-friendly home with plenty of books, magazines, newspapers that everyone can read – look for books and magazines at fairs and second-hand shops.
  • Ask your family or friends if they have any they no longer want.
  • Share what you think and how you feel about the characters, the story or the opinions in magazines and newspapers you are reading.
  • It is important that your child sees you as a reader and you talk about what you are reading.
  • Help your child identify an author, character or series of books they particularly like and find more in the series or by the author.
  • Talk about the lyrics of songs or the words of poems your child is learning.
  • Think about subscribing to a magazine on your child’s special interest, e.g., animals or sport, or check out the magazines at the library, or on the Internet.
  • Go to your local library to choose books together. These might be books your child can read easily by themself. They might be books that are a bit hard, but your child wants to read so you can help by reading a page to them, then helping them read the next.
  • Play card and board games together – the more challenging the better.
  • Encourage your child to complete Activities for Responding to Reading (see links below).
