• What can I do to support my child at home with reading?


    One of the most important things you can do is to make sure your child always has a book of interest to read.  The book needs to be interesting and motivating for him/her to read and it must also be at the correct reading level – not too hard and not too easy.  The more your child reads, the better reader he/she will become.  Read aloud to your child.  You may want to alternate pages with him/her or even read aloud a whole chapter or even an entire book.  Listening to someone else read aloud promotes fluency, comprehension, and interest.  Be a reading role model for your child. Children learn by example.
