I’ve been thinking about recoding audios instead of written blog posts for a long time and finally had the chance to record one today.
In this audio, I discuss:
The tactics that parents can use to help their child engage with literature and improve their comprehension skills.
Strategies that students can use to improve their comprehension skills and score higher marks.
If your child struggles with comprehension (especially inference, elaboration and deduction) then this is for you.
Here’s a summary of some of the tips I share:
Be involved in your child’s learning, especially with regards to their reading. Let them read to you as often as possible.
Read in short bursts rather than forcing your child to read for long periods. It’s better to read little and often than not at all.
Read a wide variety of texts including poetry, biographies, newspapers and age-appropriate magazines/comics.
Incorporate your child’s passions, interests and hobbies into their reading - make it fun.
Be strategic about approaching exam questions so that your child can maximise their scores (I talk about this in a bit of depth so it’s worth listening to hear the tips shared).
I hope the audio is useful and if you have any questions or comments, please click on the comment box below and share them.
Here’s to your child’s success!
