Tips for Parents and Carers

Encourage kids to move beyond reading texts literally to search for deeper meanings.
Ask questions such as:

  • Why do you think the author wrote this book? Were they trying to get you to think about something or learn something?
  • When this happened in the book, what did it show about the characters?
  • Did the characters change from the start of the book to the end? What did they learn?
  • What was the most important part of the book? Why? What did it show? How did it show that?

Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
