Reading
 is a complex process of decoding symbols for the intention of constructing or deriving meaning (reading comprehension).  Comprehension is having a deep understanding of what is read. Students need to be able to decode words, use comprehension strategies and think deeply about what they read in order to comprehend the text. Here are some things you can do to help improve comprehension:
1) talk to your child about the story and ask them questions
2) help your child make connections to the story
3) help your child with monitoring their comprehension
4) discuss the meanings of unknown words
5) break apart long passages
6) talk about what your child learned when reading informational text
