Supporting The Young Reader

  • WaitFor the reader

              to try.

     

    Praise the reader for:    

    *using pictures and thinking about the story

    *using letter sounds

    *noticing mistakes

    *rereading

    *giving a meaningful attempt

    *reading smoothly and with expression.

     

    Have a conversation before, during and after reading.  Have your child retell the story to you using character names, and beginning, middle, and ending details.
