Reading At Home
Many parents ask: "How can I help my child to succeed?"
READ, READ, READ, READ,
and then READ some more!
Whether or not your child has begun to read on his own, PLEASE read to your child. The books that he may not be ready to decode by himself are rich with vocabulary, ideas, and concepts that will help him become a better reader. The wonderful chapter books that she is not prepared to dive into on her own will fill her with anticipation for the day when she can! Your child's LISTENING COMPREHENSION is one of the most important keys for developing reading fluency, comprehension, and a lifelong love of reading!
