Children need to be able to understand what they read.It's a vital part of learning to read and enjoying reading!
We teach them how to 'decode' or read the words.
We also teach them how to comprehend their reading.
We teach them to INFER and DEDUCE from the text.
We do this by asking questions and talking about the story or text. This builds children's skills and helps them to be effective and efficient readers and learners.
