    Thank you!!

    You can help your child to be a strong reader.

    THANK YOU for taking time to read with your child every day.  Research shows that children, who read or are read to daily, are the ones that improve in their reading skills and become strong readers and learners!

    Talk to your child about the books you read. Ask:

    1. Who are the main characters in your book?

    2. What is the setting of your book?

    3. What is the author’s purpose for writing your book? (Think: Persuade, Inform, Entertain) How do you know?

    4. What is the main idea of your book?

    5. Is your story fiction or non-fiction and why? 

    Strategies to use when you come to a word they don’t know:

    Use context clues (clues from the pictures and text)

    Go back and reread

    Look at the beginning and ending sounds

    Look carefully at the words

    Recall basic sight words (flashcards are helpful)

    Chunk the word into smaller segments

    Use your finger to slide the chunks together
