Reading Tips

? Have your child read aloud to you every night.

? Choose a quiet place, free from distractions, for your child to do his nightly

reading assignments.

? As your child reads, point out spelling and sound patterns such as cat, pat,

hat.

? When your child reads aloud to you and makes a mistake, point out the

words she has missed and help her to read the word correctly.

? After your child has stopped to correct a word he has read, have him go

back and reread the entire sentence from the beginning to make sure he

understands what the sentence is saying.

? Ask your child to tell you in her own words what happened in a story.

? To check your child‘s understanding of what he is reading, occasionally

pause and ask your child questions about the characters and events in the

story.

? Ask your child why she thinks a character acted in a certain way and ask

your child to support her answer with information from the story.

? Before getting to the end of a story, ask your child what he thinks will

happen next and why.
