Reading Tips

Reading Practice

As with any skill, the more you practice the better you become. Just like learning to ride a bike, reading also needs to be practiced. Parents can help!

  • Read to and with your child every day.
  • Ask questions about what is being read to make sure your child understands
  • Rereading favorite stories and books is fine. This helps build fluency.
  • Take your child to the library and stay awhile to read together (then borrow more books to take home).
  • Make reading a priority in your home.
  • Remember, you are your child's most important teacher.  Children learn to do what you do!
