17 Questions & Answers What reading standards and reading behaviors are my child’s teacher focusing on? What is the Reading Continuum and how can I use it to help my child advance to the next stage? The district has designed a parent friendly reading continuum which is very beneficial in helping parents identify their child’s reading behaviors. It includes questions that you can ask, as a parent, each night as you read with your child. For example, at the primary level; does your child read from the top to the bottom of the page with a return sweep? Can your child identify the letters in the alphabet? Does he/she know the sound of the letters in the alphabet? At the intermediate level, question might be: Is you child making connections between different stories they have read? Do they ask you, or themselves questions to clarify meaning of the text Do they creates visual images in their mind as the story progresses? Do they make predictions?
