How to Help Your First Grader Read and Write

  • Play word games and board games. Games are an easy and enjoyable way to help your child increase reading-related skills, such as vocabulary, categorizing, letter-sound relationships and problem-solving. It’s fun and useful to play board games or make up your own word games.
  • Help your child fix her own reading errors. Children learn best when they can fix their errors by themselves. If your child is stuck, ask questions such as, “Did that make sense?” or “Do you see a little word you know inside that big word?” to help her correct her own mistakes.
  • Talk together about books you read. Talk with your first-grader about the books you read aloud to help her improve her comprehension. When you ask your child to describe her favorite part or to make a prediction, you are helping her to make sense of stories.
  • Help your child write a bit each day. First graders learn to write best when they write everyday about things that interest them. When you help your child write important dates on his calendar or encourage him to write in his diary, you are giving him the practice he needs.
  • Talk to your child’s teacher often. Talk with your first grader’s teacher about her progress often, and find out how reading and writing are taught in your child’s class. When you and your child’s class. When you and your child’s teacher work together, you can help your child learn to read and write.
