Reading is the key to discovering knowledge, not just at school but throughout a child's lifetime.  Reading as a leisure pursuit is also a pleasure, which is why we work hard at making the children at Parkland confident and competent readers.  Every child reads at school for the first half an hour of every day and we also ask parents to read with their child at least three times a week.  Here are some tips for listening to your child read.


Make time to listen to your child read.

Sit comfortably together and make sure you limit distractions such as the television.

Before reading, look at the cover or illustrations together and discuss what the book may be about.

When listening to the actual reading don't rush to correct mistakes unless it significantly alters the meaning.

Offer the read character parts yourself.  Encourage your child to put expression into reading, to attempt "voice" characterisation to bring them to life.

After reading encourage your child to tell you about what they have read.  Ask questions about what they say, what they think, what opinions they have formed about characters and the story.

Always praise and comment on progress.  Communicate your enjoyment at listening to your child read.

We have several volunteer parents who come into school to listen to individual readers.  We are very grateful for their help and would like to encourage more people to give a little time in this valuable way.  Grandmas and Grandpas are also very welcome.  If you are interested please contact the office or speak to your child's teacher.
