Dialogic reading

As opposed to traditional reading aloud, where children only listen, in dialogic reading the adult reads in such a way that more language interplay is created with the children. By asking questions and engaging the children during reading, the children are challenged and thus develop more language skills.

Dialogic reading can be divided into three stages: before, during and after reading:

Before reading

  • Read the book before reading it with your child, and roughly decide what you want to talk about and which questions you will ask about the story when reading the book together.
  • Make reading the book together a nice experience and a special occasion.
  • Introduce the book to your child: show him/her the front page and the back page and tell your child who has written and illustrated the book.
  • Ask your child questions about the book's appearance.
    You could let your child hold a small object which has a special meaning in the story.

During reading

  • Always be open to questions during reading. When your child asks a question, stop reading and answer him.
  • Let your child's curiosity set the agenda, be attentive, ask what catches your child's interest and listen to his or her answer. Involve your child as a co-narrator.
  • When reading the book again, show your child the book and encourage him or her to tell what he or she remembers, e.g. from the pictures. Feel free to add new knowledge to your child's existing knowledge.

After reading

  • Talk with your child about the content, also after you have closed the book. Use the new words from the book – the more often your child hears the words, the more likely he or she will be to remember them and use them.
