Ideas and Suggestions


When you sit down and read a book with your child, you may want to first read it to your child.  This is especially important if your child is having difficulty reading.  Once you have finished reading the story to your child, have your child read it back to you. 


As your child reads each story, take note of words or groups of words that are especially difficult.  You may want to take a pencil or highlighter and mark those words in the book, or if you do not own the book- keep a word list. Go over those words daily until they are no longer difficult.


Ask your child questions as you read the book.  Talk about the pictures, the titles, the characters.  Did you like the book/  Who was your favorite character and why?  What do you think will happen next?


Once your child is comfortable with reading the words in a book, they may want to read it over and over again!


Don't overdo it, but read and have your child read to you on a daily basis. The more your child read, the easier it will become for them.


Reading is the key that unlocks the mind!


Have fun!
