DC reads, but prefers factual books/non-fiction, likes information fast and switches off if it takes too long to get to the point. Hence the problem with reading story books and thus his reading speed is slower. I have been encouraging
DC to read every night but it's like pulling teeth, reads reluctantly and generally does not enjoy it.
I have tried numerous books, could probably set up a library with the amount I have in my home .... but DC starts to reads them eagerly and then starts to get bored with the whole thing. With the 11+ looming (DC Y5) and speed being the essence I am in a quandary how to increase speed.
Help/advice would be great ... do I keep trying with the story books or should I focus on doing more comprehensions and getting DC to do these and see if this helps, plus DC learns 20 new words a week (meanings/antonyms/homophones etc.)??? With two other DCs who read for England I'm definitely at a loss what to do. Recent reading test in February put DC at a 4a, where both my others at this stage were level 5s ...
