 Reading is an important part of any student’s life: it helps them understand the world better, expand their vocabulary, improve in grammar and spelling, and much more. This is why it’s important for them to be good readers and practice their reading comprehension skills. 

Moreover, if they become better at it, it’s more likely that they’ll develop the habit of reading, which brings a myriad of benefits of its own. With this in mind, this post will go over a few ways in which you can help your child improve their reading skills.

How to Help Your Child Become a Better Reader


  1. Encourage them to read as much as they can. To do this, start by picking the right material for them: one with a topic that interests them, and that is at their reading level.
  2. If you���d like your child to focus on what they’re reading so they can understand the text, provide the right environment for it (e.g. comfortable, well-lit and free of distractions).
  3. Something as simple as taking notes can help your child pay more attention to the text. Tell them to write down names, important plot points, and more to keep them engaged.
  4. It’s difficult to understand a text if you don’t know what the words in it mean. This is where a dictionary can come in handy to help your child expand their vocabulary. 
  5. When we read, we may skip words/sentences, or we may continue reading even though we don’t understand the text, which only ends up confusing us. To avoid this, ask your child to read out loud and to avoid moving forward until they’ve understood the text.
  6. Lastly, you can discuss the reading material with your child. By doing so, they’ll be gaining new perspectives on the matter, and they’ll get a chance to share their thoughts and questions, which will only enhance their experience.
