Ask your child some of these questions when they’re reading to develop their comprehension skills. Before your child starts reading, you can discuss: What does the front cover tell us about the book? Where can you find the blurb? What information does it tell us? Whilst your child is reading, you can ask: What do you think might happen next? Why do you think they did that? What does that word mean? Do you know any other words that mean the same? Which word tells you the character is nervous / upset / excited?
