Reading Bookmark

Parents and Carers, each child has a bookmark with the question prompts in the document below. Whilst reading with your child, try to choose one question from each section. You could ask more than one type of question per page.

This will check that your child really understands what they are reading and could lead you into further conversations about the book.

Questions to consider while listening to your child read:
• Is this text challenging enough?
• Does this text explore any new themes/messages?
• Is this text written by an author my child hasn’t read books from before?
• Does my child understand every word they are reading?
