Tips for Reading at Home
*Encourage your child to think about "what would make sense, sound right, and look right" at the point of difficulty.
*Encourage your child to read familiar books without their finger to help build fluency.
*Encourage your child to pay attention to punctuation and think about how their voice will change for each punctuation mark (ex: sound excited for an exclamation mark, pause at comma, make it sound like a question is being asked, etc)
*Have your child tell you about the book they have read in as much detail as possible, from beginning to end.
*Before your child reads a book, have them preview it by looking through the pictures and describing what is happening (who, what, where, when, why).
