Home Reading

Every child brings a reader home from school every day. We would like to remind family members of the importance of reading at home and offer the following tips to help your child:

  • Invite your child to read with you every day.
  • Read many stories with rhyming words and lines that repeat. Ask your child to join in on these parts.
  • Point, word by word, as they read along with you.
  • Stop and ask about the pictures and what is happening in the story.
  • Read from a variety of children’s books: include fairy tales, song books, poems and information booklets.

The above are simple techniques to create strong readers and help you to support our home reading program.
