Title I Reading
What can I do as a parent to help my child become a better reader?
Research shows that parent involvement and encouragement can make a dramatic difference in a child’s success at reading and learning. Here are a few suggestions to help encourage your child to be an active reader:
• Encourage your child to read anything and everything in and around your home (newspapers, magazines books, instructions, recipes, etc.) Let your child see you reading.
• Take your child to the library and let him/her choose books that are of interest
Encourage your child to talk to you about the book she/he is reading (in school or independently).
– What do they like or what don’t they like about the book?
– What are the characters like?
– What do they think is going to happen next?
– What do you imagine the character or setting looks like?
-Were you surprised by anything in the book?
– Did you predict anything that happened?
Read a book with your child or get two copies of the same book and share your thoughts with each other as you make your way through the book.
If possible, set up a quiet and well-lit reading area in your home.
• Celebrate your child’s success when a new or challenging book is completed . Make reading an important part of your life. The example you set for your child can have a dramatic effect on your child’s love for reading and success in learning.
