Our Principal - Mr. Toby Haugen

As we enter the second quarter, everyone is settling into their routines: getting ready for school in the morning, daily classroom schedules, afterschool activities, and bedtime.  I hope that reading with your child is part of your daily routine, especially with children in kindergarten through third grade.  Over the last several weeks, I have had several parents ask how they can best help their child become a better reader.  The website readingrockets.org has some great tips specific to K-3 children.  Here are some great ideas to help your beginning reader.

·         Talk to your child – Ask your child to talk about is day at school.  Encourage him to explain something they did, or a game he played during recess.

·         Say silly tongue twisters – Sing songs, read rhyming books, and say silly tongue twisters.  These help kids become sensitive to the sounds in words.

·         Read it and experience it – Connect what your child reads with what happens in life.  If reading a book about animals, relate it to your last trip to the zoo.

·         Use your child’s name – Point out the link between letters and sounds.  Say, “John, the word jump begins with the same sounds as your name.  John, jump.  They both begin with the same letter J.”

·         Trace and say letters – Have your child use a finger to trace a letter while saying the letter’s sound.  Do this on paper, in sand, or on a plate of sugar.

·         Read it again and again – Go ahead and read your child’s favorite book for the 100th time!  As you read, pause and ask your child about what is going on in the book.

A strong literacy foundation is so important to the success a child will have in school.  Please add these strategies to your daily routine to help build that foundation.

 

Believe, Succeed, Lead!
