Reading Comprehension
Reading Comprehension means you understand what you read.  Good readers automatically use strategies to help them comprehend what they read:  preview the selection, access prior knowledge, make and revise predictions, visualize, monitor and clarify for meaning, make connections and summarize.  Students who struggle with comprehension need to be taught these skills.
Students in my class who need to improve reading comprehension are progress monitored every 3 weeks.
What can you do at home?  After your child reads a book at his lexile level for 20 minutes, ask him to summarize what he read--either in writing or orally.  Ask him to explain if you don't understand.  Discuss any difficult vocabulary.
