More for Parents! Here are some teaching tips to practice reading with your child.
Poetry and rhythm make reading fun and help children remember what they read. Rhyming lets children hear the differences between words and the sounds within words. Practice these skills at home: read poems, sing songs, make silly rhymes, play word games, and make ‘nonsense’ words – these are fun ways to sharpen reading skills.
Painting and drawing support reading skills by teaching eye/hand coordination (for better writing skills) and illustration (for engagement and comprehension).
Reading can be great fun when parents and children do it together!
