30 Days to a Better Reader: Day 5

It’s day 5!  How are things going with your reader?

Let’s go back over the things that you should be doing to help your child improve in reading.

1.) Read with your child.

2.) Point to the words as you read and make sure you are giving your child a chance to sound out the hard words by him/herself before you step in.

3.) Read to yourself.

4.) Talk to your child.


I know that it’s hard to make time for all of this reading but I honestly believe it will make a huge difference in your lives.  Keep working at it and implement things a little at a time.  Start reading for 15 minutes at a time and move up from their.  I am really looking forward to hearing how things are going for you.  Are you having a hard time with something so far?  Have a question?  Let me know in the comments.
