Reviewing Reading Strategies

Reviewing Reading Strategies

Core fiction and nonfiction reading strategies become automatic with practice. Review basic reading comprehension strategies by encouraging your child to think about what he or she already knows about a topic and to make connections as they read. Encourage your child to visualize, or make a movie in their mind, as they read. Challenge them to determine the most important information, main idea, and supporting details. This will get your young reader critically thinking about texts; these are all strategies they will rely on as fourth graders.
