Reading

20/05/2016
Wondall Heights continues to focus on reading as our key agenda focus. Please support your child’s learning by regularly reading with them. Remember to read to them, read with them and let them read to you. Share a love of great books, anticipate together what is going to happen next, and celebrate the outcome at the end of each story or chapter.

HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHILD WITH READING
As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher. It is important to encourage your child to read outside of the classroom. Our school is asking all parents to help their children to improve their reading skills. You can do this by:
visiting the local library – this is an economical way to provide access to different kinds of books and learning materials and allows children to borrow from a wide range. Your library may also offer a reading program which makes reading an exciting experience and allows them to mix with other children;
asking ‘why’ questions as you read a book or story together to help your child understand each book;
asking them to think about alternate endings to make much-loved books even more interesting;
reading to your child as often as you can; and
trying to carry a book with you when away from home.
