Put Reading First: Helping Your Child Learn to Read (A Parent Guide)

 

Here are some things you can do at home to help support what your child's teacher is doing in the classroom...

 

If your child is just beginning to learn to read:

- Practice the sounds of language. - Read books with rhymes. Teach your child rhymes, short poems, and songs. Play simple word games: How many words can you make up that sound like the word "bat"?

- Helping your child take spoken words apart and put them together. - Help your child separate the sounds in words, listen for beginning and ending sounds, and put separate sounds together.

- Practicing the alphabet by pointing out letters wherever you see them and by reading alphabet books.

 

If your child is just beginning to read:

- Pointing out the letter-sound relationships your child is learning on labels, boxes, newspapers, magazines and signs.

- Listening to your child read words and books from school. - Be patient and listen as your child practices. Let your child know you are proud of his reading.

 

If your child is reading:

- Rereading familiar books. - Children need practice in reading comfortably and with expression using books they know.

- Building reading accuracy. - As your child is reading aloud, point out words they miss and help them read words correctly. If you stop to focus on a word, have your child reread the whole sentence to be sure he understands the meaning.

- Building reading comprehension. - Talk with your child about what they are reading. Ask about new words. Talk about what happened in a story. Ask about the characters, places, and events that took place. Ask what new information they have learned from the book. Encourage them to read on their own.

 

Make reading a part of every day:

- Share conversations with your child over meal times and other times you are together. - Children learn words more easily when they hear them spoken often. Introduce new and interesting words at every opportunity.

- Read together every day. - Spend time talking about stories, pictures, and words.

- Be your child's best advocate. - Keep informed about your child's progress in reading and ask the teacher about ways you can help.

- Be a reader and a writer. - Children learn habits from the people around them.

- Visit the library often. - Story times, computers, homework help, and other exciting activities await the entire family.
