Reading Practice At Home:
The best way to improve reading skills is to practice reading each night. In our small group, we focus on decoding unknown words while increasing reading fluency. Reading fluency is the ability to read with accuracy and expression at an appropriate pace. Reading each night will help increase your child’s sight word automaticity and oral reading fluency skills. Below are some suggestions your child can try at home.
What kids can do to help themselves
- Track the words with your finger as a parent reads a passage aloud. Then you read it.
- Have a parent or older sibling read aloud to you. Then, match your voice to theirs.
- Read your favorite books and poems over and over again. Practice getting smoother and reading with expression.
