Relating Words through Past knowledge

The most effective way of understanding what one’s read is to relate past knowledge into new ones. Usually children find it hard to comprehend the selections because of the new words found in it. Therefore, what makes the selection easier to understand is when the children can relate the words to their past knowledge or experience.
When children read something about Thanksgiving, the first thing that comes up on their mind is turkey, gathering, family, holiday and so forth. If the poem or selection is about Thanks giving, they can easily understand the details because of their past knowledge in relation to the topic. Hence, new words can be easily understand because of the familiarity on the subject.
