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.
