Teaching reading comprehension is critical to ensure your kids are successful readers. Children have to learn more than just recognizing letters, sounds and words. They need to associate meaning to those letters, sounds and words.
The bigger picture needs to be in the back of your mind, and keeping them interested in reading is vital.

The right reading comprehension strategies can be the key to instilling a love of reading in your child. Without these strategies, it's like reading a foreign language; they can say the words, but have no idea how to interpret them.
As your children develop and grow you should see their comprehension improve. You can measure their understanding by the questions they ask and the comments they make.
While preschool and kindergarten kids are primarily learning how to decode our language and to recognize letters and words, first graders are becoming real readers.
By the end of first grade, kids should be able to talk about the books they’re reading and know how to summarize the main ideas. They should understand more and more vocabulary words and be able to associate what they’re reading with the world around them. They are developing interests and should be communicating what kinds of books they are interested in.
