A Word from Mrs. Vincent

Dear Parents,

There are many ways that you can help your child become a better reader at home!

1. Choose books that are at an appropriate reading level for your child. Choosing books that match your child’s likes and interests is a great idea too!

2. Make reading a part of your family time!! Read bedtime stories, play a board game, or read a recipe and cook together!

3. Keep plenty of reading materials in your home. Children enjoy having a variety of reading materials!

While reading with your child, be sure to check for understanding. Here are some examples of what you can do and say!

  • Start the book by making predictions. What do you think will happen in this story?

  • Ask questions and make comments during the reading process.

  • After reading a book, have your child tell you the events from the story in the correct order.

  • Encourage your child to make connections. Does this story remind you of another book you read? An event in your life? A movie?

4. Read aloud to your child. When you read aloud to your child it is an opportunity for you to model fluent reading. One fun read aloud strategy is ‘I read a page, you read a page’. Taking turns reading a book is a good way for your child to get practice and also hear you read!

**Use our local library! The Reddick Library is full of children’s books that will interest your young reader!
