    Weekly reading tips for parents... from Reading Rockets

    Don't leave home without it

    Bring along a book or magazine any time your child has to wait, such as at a doctor's office. Always try to fit in reading!

    Once is not enough

    Encourage your child to re-read favorite books and poems. Re-reading helps kids read more quickly and accurately.

    Dig deeper into the story

    Ask your child questions about the story you've just read. Say something like, "Why do you think Clifford did that?"

     

    When your child gets stuck on a word they can...

    -get their mouth ready for the beginning sound or sounds up to the vowel.
    -look at the picture and think about what would make sense.
    -run their finger under the word and say the sounds or word parts they know.
    -see what they know about the word (chunk it or break it into smaller words they know)
    -skip it and then go back and  think about what would make sense
    -reread


    Have a great week!
    Mrs. Barnfield
