Reading comprehension for children: how to learn with method

Teach our children to enjoy reading It is one of the goals that we set ourselves when we consider their education. For this to happen we not only have to put at your disposal all the possible books adapted to your age, but we must also worry about your reading comprehension.

Why? Because only when the child is able to get information from what he reads, can he interpret it and relate it to what he already knows and reflect on it will he be able to enjoy reading.

Motivation is fundamental for children to learn, and reading has the virtue of encouraging children to show greater interest and to make an effort to understand what they read. But if we also have a Reading comprehension reinforcement methodology we will achieve our goal, which is to develop the ability to understand what is read by working on the vocabulary, that is, the meaning of the words that form a text, and the overall understanding of the text itself.


What can we do to improve reading comprehension in Primary?

Many parents ask ourselves what we can do to get children interested in reading when their true interest is in the games and activities offered by new technologies. The solution lies in knowing how to gather both in a single method like Leobien, an app for electronic devices (Tablet, Smartphone (we do not recommend the application for mobile), Computer ...) designed to improve children's reading comprehension, while having fun and becoming effective readers.

It offers practical exercises that reinforce and stimulate the learning of different aspects of reading such as memory, attention, speed and comprehension.


The activities adapt to the learning rhythm of each child making him progress according to his level. The exercises are done online from home or anywhere with the tablet or computer. With only 17 minutes of exercise every dayFrom Monday to Friday, the child creates a habit while fostering a taste for reading, establishing a discipline that will help him in his studies and throughout his life.

The secret to its success lies in turning boring exercises into a fun activity through online games, that keep the child motivated. With each correct answer, the child gets stars and supercoins. With the stars your bongo will evolve and with the supercoins you will dress your avatar and decorate your house. In addition, its flexible methodology allows the child to evolve from their own level and that their parents can see their progress at any time, since they can access the platform to see its evolution.
