Tips to Help Improve Your Child's Reading:
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!
Encourage your child to re-read favorite books and poems. Re-reading helps kids read more quickly and accurately.
Ask your child questions about the story you've just read. Say something like, "Why do you think Clifford did that?"
It's difficult for reading to compete with TV and video games. Encourage reading as a free-time activity.
When your child is trying to sound out an unfamiliar word, give him or her time to do so. Remind to child to look closely at the first letter or letters of the word.
Help your child pick books that are not too difficult. The aim is to give your child lots of successful reading experiences.
Review and practice the First Grade Sight Word List Daily.
Read to/with your child each night.
