Weekly reading tips for parents... from Reading Rockets

    Tell family tales

    Children love to hear stories about their family. Talk about a funny thing that happened when you were young.

    Create a writing toolbox

    Fill a box with drawing and writing materials. Find opportunities for your child to write, such as the shopping list, thank you notes, or birthday cards.

    Be your child's #1 fan

    Ask your child to read aloud what he or she has written for school. Be an enthusiastic listener.

    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

    Have a great week!
    Mrs. Barnfield
