When your child reads a story or a passage, comprehension is when they really get what’s happening in the story. It’s not just about saying the words; it’s about understanding the meaning behind them.

There are a few things that go into reading comprehension:

  1. Understanding the Words: Your child needs to know what the words mean. If they come across a word they don’t know, they might miss out on what’s happening in the story.

  2. Understanding the Story: It’s like watching a movie in your head! Your child needs to be able to picture what’s happening in the story and understand why things are happening the way they are.

  3. Making Connections: Good readers connect what they’re reading to things they already know. For example, if the story talks about going to the beach, your child might think about their own trips to the beach.

  4. Asking Questions: Sometimes, asking questions helps us understand better. Encouraging your child to ask questions about the story can deepen their understanding.

  5. Summarizing: After reading, your child should be able to tell you in their own words what the story was about. This shows they really understood it.

As parents, you can help with reading comprehension by asking your child about what they’re reading. You can talk about the characters, the setting, and what they think will happen next. It’s like having a little book club at home!

Reading comprehension is like a muscle; the more your child practices, the stronger they’ll get at it. So keep encouraging them to read and talk about what they read. It’s a great way to help them become better readers!”

WH questions are words that help us ask questions. They start with words like ‘who,’ ‘what,’ ‘where,’ ‘when,’ ‘why,’ and ‘how.’

  • Who: This helps us find out about people. Like, ‘Who is your best friend?’

  • What: This helps us learn about things. For example, ‘What is your favorite color?’

  • Where: This helps us understand places. We might ask, ‘Where did you go on vacation?’

  • When: This tells us about time. Like, ‘When is your birthday?’

  • Why: This helps us understand reasons. We might ask, ‘Why did you choose that book?’

  • How: This helps us understand the way things happen. For example, ‘How do you tie your shoes?’
