Even if your child is in grade 6 you can still read at home with him/her! Alternate reading pages or paragraphs aloud to each other! Borrow books on tape or CD from the library and have your child follow along, too!
***When you read at home with your child, it is important to have your child figure out unknown words on his/her own by:
- Sound it out
- Skip it, read on, go back
- Look for familiar chunks in the word, for example in “wagon” there’s “ag” as in “bag” and the chunk “on”
- Divide words into syllables e. Always ask self “does that look right, sound right, make sense?”
