Teaching phonics and sight words is all well and good. We are putting a big focus on that in our school this year with a couple of my kids. But what happens when you get to the end of all that phonics and sight words practice, and your child still doesn’t remember a thing they have read?
For most children, reading comprehension develops naturally, and can be improved by using a few of these targeted methods as they learn to read. But for some kids, reading comprehension is a huge challenge and you will need to pull out all the stops. I’ve collected a list of comprehension strategies and games to help get you started no matter which type of reader you have.
