Becoming an Independent Reader

Steps towards becoming an Independent Reader

At this stage understanding the story, connecting with the characters and greatly increasing an awareness of the world around the readers comes into play. There is an excitement as a world of imagination in a child’s brain connects with the storytelling ability of a great writer. Characters unfold and worlds grow and develop as understanding of words and vocabulary strengthen when a child becomes more independent at reading. Short stories as well as titles which appeal to their interests can help them engage and develop as readers
