My daughter will readif I ask her to , or she does it to please me sometimes. not that she does not enjoy it once she sits down. Reading is something that is an essential skill to have . My daughetr reads but I am not sure how much she comprehends or undestand. She probably gets 'the jist of it' when she reads the whole story , but misses out on the context paragraph wise.
Sometimes I sit with her and read to/with her. We enjoy that , but I just get tempted to ask what she undestood say from the last 2 paras that werad , or some work in context etc. Then I explain if she missed out...but continuosly halting and asking questions and explaining takes the 'fun, out ofthe reading! I want her to ally start enjoying reading - both fiction and non-fiction. what do I do. i am ready to do whateverit takes and change my approach aswell.
I unfortunately have missed out on reading to her daily for the last few years, something that I truly regret... please share all tips andadvice thatyou may have for me... Do I let her read on her own , whether or not she undestands or read to her and explain, or ask her questions to make sure she undestands. I want her to enjoy but also undestand because that is critical.
I also have a 2 yr old...what should I do so that he gets encouraged also. He is usually someother place in the room or looking elsewhere or doing something else when I try to read to him.
I dont know if this is a right board to post it in.. If thereis any other related board, please let me know. i am getting desparate and need help
