Supporting Children with Reading at Home
The Golden Rule ……. Reading should be enjoyable
How to Begin
If your child is having difficulty…wait and then prompt
Choose from one of the following:
1. Try that again.
2. “Does that make sense?” OR
3. “Does it look right? - matching sounds to letters or chunks of words OR
4. “Can you say it that way?”
5. “Let’s work it out together” - sounding out the word
Tell your child the word if it is getting too difficult.
Praise the Reading Children need encouragement
e.g “Good you’ve had a go at those sounds—it’s a tricky word.”
e.g. “Well done, you worked it out by yourself.”
e.g. “That’s great how you fixed up your own mistake without any help.”
At the end of the story spend a few minutes discussing the story. You can see how well your child has understood the main ideas.
Thank you and if there’s any problem please see me.
