Get into the Reading Habit!
Read with your child every day. Even older children still enjoy being read to.
Talk with your child about the story.
- Talk about what is happening.
- Ask questions--WHY did that happen? WHY did the character do that?
- Talk about how the story relates to your life.
- Talk about new and interesting ideas or words.
Set a time for your child to read to you. Some students will have books that are sent home to reread to you. Talk with your child about the story.
Make reading a fun family activity.
If the at home reading is feeling like work--please talk to me about finding more appropriate books for your child to read at home.
