Reading Strategies

 

When your child comes to an unfamiliar word:

 

WAIT!!!!!

Avoid eye contact
Keep your eyes on the page
Give your child time to piece together clues
Readers need time to look ahead, reread, skip words and pick up clues or information from illustrations.
The Clue is in the book Don't be an instant word factor

Book Orientation

Take two to three minutes to talk about the book
Discuss the title
Discuss the illustrations
Find any unusual words by scanning
If it is a chapter book read first chapter together

NIM Reading

Read aloud while your child mimics the words lightly behind you.
Track words by moving your finger under the lines in a fluid movement.
Model good reading- read in your normal voice.

Take it in turns to read a sentence, paragraph or page.

Paired Reading

This strategy is used when a book is familiar to the child and can be read independently.
Use the same book and share.

Continue taking turns
