Ask Him to Visualize What He's Reading

Visualization is an important skill for readers. What we see in our minds as we read helps us to comprehend what we're reading, make predictions about what will happen next, and remember what we've read. As you read with your child, compare the mental pictures you see. Ask your child: What does the setting look like in your mind? How do you picture the characters? These conversations will help your child visualize each scene with more clarity.
