Reading

Homework: All parents should be reading to their child 15-20 minutes each night or sometime of the day that is good for your family.  Encourage your child to look for words that they recognize as you read. 

  • Giving them a clue with the sound of the letter will help them with strategies for reading as they become more proficient. 
  • I also like to read a totally “wrong word” that starts with the right sound but is not at all in the context and see if they catch how ridiculous that guess would be. 
  • Highlighting words they recognize in the newspaper or magazines is a great activity to do at home. 
  • Let them phonetically write a grocery list for you and see if they can read it back to you at the store.  This will increase their letter-sound associations. 

Here are some websites we like:

Tumblebooks - The kids are introduced to this site in Media. Online books for elementary and ELL students to listen and read-along; in English, Spanish and French.

www.starfall.com - At starfall.com kids can play reading games. Most games are for beginning readers. The stories at the end are set up so if you click on a word the computer reads it to you.

Between the Lions - This PBS website has many child-friendly activities and is full of reading games your child can play.
