"The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go."
- Dr. Seuss
Tips for reading success:
1. Read regularly with your child.
2. Take turns choosing books.
3. Let your child participate by letting him/her turn the pages or fill in words he/she knows.
4. Be playful. Use different voices for different characters.
While reading, your child may get stuck on a word.
Here are some activities your child can try:
1. Look for little words in big words.
2. Look for key words or picture clues.
3. Look and listen for letter patterns.
4. Ask them if it makes sense.
5. Ask them if it sounds right.
6. Backtrack. Read it again.
7. Say the beginning sound and read the rest of the sentence.
8. Skip it and go on.
Here are several fun ways to practice sight words:
1. Play-Doh: Roll the play-doh up like a snake and have your child make the letter or word you say. Trace over it three times saying the letter(s).
2. Sand: Place sand on a paper plate and have your child write the letter or word you say in the sand. Trace over it three times saying the letter(s).
3. White Board: Have your child write the letter or word you say on a whiteboard three times.
4. Sidewalk Chalk: Have your child write the letter or word you say on the sidewalk using chalk.
5. Cloudy Letters: Have your child write a letter or word on a piece of paper. Glue cotton balls on top of the letter(s). Trace the letter or word three times.
