• Reading Tips!

    • When helping your  child  read at home, several strategies may be used to aid in decoding unknown  words:


    ·   Tell your child  to use the picture.

    ·   Tell your child  to look for chunks in the word, such as it in sit, and in and, or ing  in standing.

    ·   Ask your child  to get his/her mouth ready to say the first letter in the word.

    ·   Ask your child if  the word looks like another word he/she knows. (rhyming)

    ·   If your child  says  the wrong word while reading, ask questions like:

    Does it make sense?

    Does it sound right?
