Reading Comprehension

  • Reading Comprehension Mastery: Where to Find Help with Reading

    Studying takes a lot more than mental alertness. The body influences the mind to a great extent. This is why people prefer a particular place to study and may even have a certain body position while they’re studying—whether this is seated in a favorite chair or hopped up with legs folded on the couch. It makes sense that making the body and the mind more comfortable to study improves how much studying is done and what information is absorbed. For instance, the use of a Slant Board is a phenomenal tool for students and others that helps to read and study material. It can also help students to write.

    slant boards help kids readThe eyes can become greatly fatigued when vision is compromised. If a substantial amount of reading is required, reading material in the easiest manner becomes necessary. Slant Boards prop up the back of the reading material so that the direction of the page is suited to the eyes. This is important as it saves the body from contorting itself to see all the words of the reading material. In addition, a person that uses a Slant Board has better ergonomic advantage and may suffer less back problems down the road. A person that reads material on a flat surface tends to slouch while a person that reads material that sits at an angle will sit fully upright.

    Slant Boards assist children when learning how to read. The eyes must be trained, like any other part of the body. Reading requires a particular path for the eyes to move. Improving this pattern improves the speed at which one reads. For some children that require vision therapy, Slant Boards can be exceptionally helpful. Slant Boards are tilted at the right position to assist a child with their eye coordination and eye movement control.

    Slant Boards are a helpful tool for anyone that is required to read material: young children learning to read, children who are in need of vision therapy, children doing schoolwork, teenagers doing homework, and business professionals. Slant Boards are the perfect, lightweight solution to easier and more efficient reading.

  • How Using A Slant Board Can Help Improve Your Child's Reading Comprehension

    If you're working with your child to help him or her learn to read, you want to take a look at the Slant Boards Visual Edge has to offer. The board can help kids to read by slanting books or reading material at a 22 degree angle, which makes it easier to see the words on the page.

    The legs of the slant board also collapse, so the device is easy to carry and transport. The book latch at the bottom of the board and the paperclip up top are ideal for holding books of any size or keeping papers secure. The boards are available in colors of the blue, yellow, and green varieties.

For instance, the slanted lap pillow makes for comfortable reading in bed or while traveling. Visual Edge also sells dry erase markers in several colors and magnet sets that help children create eye-catching shapes while learning more about geometry. If you need replacement parts for your slant boards, Visual Edge offers paperclips and book catches as well as board legs to keep the Slant Board functioning well.

    While the Slant Board can help kids to read the textbooks and leisure reading materials of their choice, there are also a few tips you can incorporate into your child or student's daily schedule that will improve reading skills. For instance, set aside a time each day to read with your child. This creates a routine and sends the message to your son or daughter that reading is important. Scheduling a time for the entire family to read together can also be fun and engaging for the child and help him or her to associate reading with having a great time. It's also a good idea to surround your child with as much reading material as possible. This gives him or her options when it comes to learning about a variety of subjects. When young readers have an array of choices, they are more likely to read for pleasure, which increases comprehension and can boost a child's confidence in the classroom.
