A PARENT'S GUIDE TO RAISING A READER

  1. Make reading fun!
  2. Reading to your child EVERY day!
  3. Be a reader yourself and model good reading habits.
  4. Visit the library frequently.
  5. Provide books that your child will enjoy and can read with ease.
  6. Encourage your child to read to you, but don't expect word perfect accuracy. Make sure what he/she reads makes sense.
  7. Before reading a book, encourage your child to look at the pictures and make predictions.
  8. When your child encounters a challenging word, encourage him to:
    • Use the picture and letter clues,
    • Substitute a word that would make sense,
    • Skip the word and read on, and/or
    • Reread the sentence again
  9. Afterwards, talk about the story and your reactions to the story.
