How can parents help?

Thank you for your continued support, it really is appreciated.  When you hear your child read it is really helpful if you could ask them specific questions, e.g. about their understanding of the story/information read so far, what they predict might happen next, what a particular word means and any other questions which will help them to read with understanding and enjoyment.
