1. Remember to read every night and sign the daily reading log.
2. Practice first grade word lists and word cards often.
3. Daily phonics review is a must! Do at least 10 a day. Give your child a
“phonics dictation” test. You say the sound and have your child write down the phonogram that makes that sound.
4. Help your child apply the reading skills learned such as:
* Using phonics to decode words.
* Look at the picture to see what would make sense.
* Reread the sentence to see what would fit.
* Search the tricky word for any “word chunks” that I know.
* Check to see if it sounds right, looks right, and makes sense!
What is P.R.I.D.E.?
P.R.I.D.E. (Practicing Reading Intervention Develops Excellence) is a specialized reading program provided for primary students needing extra reading instruction. It is the combined efforts of the classroom teacher, parent, student, and the P.R.I.D.E. teacher that make the program effective.
Reading aloud is probably the single most important activity you can do to affect reading success. The benefits of reading aloud are greatest when you have your child participate in activities such as identifying words and letters, talking about the story and the meaning of words, and so on. Here are some reading aloud tips...
*Read aloud every day at least 10-15 minutes.
*Choose a special place for reading away from the TV and other distractions.
*Read something you like. Your child will pick up on your enthusiasm for reading!
*Model what good reading should sound like. Use expression!
*For a very beginning reader, point to the words as you read. This will show that words read from left to right.
*Discuss any unfamiliar vocabulary.
*Ask your child questions about the story you're reading such as...
What do you think will happen next?
Does the story remind you of anything?
How would you change this story?
*Don't be concerned if your child wants to listen to the same bok over and over. Repetition familiarizes children with specific words and ideas.
*Choose books to read aloud that are at your child's reading level, but also choose books that are above your child's reading level. By reading books with more difficult text, you are increasing oral vocabulary.
ONCE YOUR CHILD LEARNS TO READ TO YOU, REMEMBER TO CONTINUE READING TO YOUR CHILD!
MAKE EVERY READING MOMENT COUNT!
