Fostering a love of books and reading is essential in raising great readers and family support is critically important in establishing this.

 

READING IN THE ETH以太坊_Mybit专业home

Reading in the ETH以太坊_Mybit专业home helps to create quality family time, a love of reading, an awareness of sounds, a greater vocabulary, comprehension skills, a window to the world and respect for books.

Each of these valuable practices requires different strategies and different books.

READING BOOKS THAT RHYME HELPS TO DEVELOP PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS

PURPOSE:
Phonological Awareness is the ability to hear the sounds in words. It is essential for learning to read. Reading books with words that repeat the final sounds helps achieve this.

 

STRATEGIES:

  • Initially, over-emphasise these words as you read.
  • Then, encourage your child to repeat and say these words with you.
  • Eventually, let your child provide these words alone.

READING BOOKS WITH ALLITERATION AND ONOMATOPOEIA

PURPOSE:
To develop good phonological awareness it is important that your child learns to hear each sound in a word. Reading books with words that repeat sounds helps them do this. Alliteration is the repeating of the first sound in words e.g. llamas love licking lollipops. In onomatopoeia the word suggests the sound that it describes e.g. ‘whoosh’.

 

STRATEGIES:

  • Initially, over-emphasise these words as you read.
  • Then, encourage your child to repeat and say these words with you.
  • Eventually, let your child provide these words alone.

READING BOOKS WITH NEW AND INTERESTING WORDS AND PHRASES

PURPOSE:
There are many words that are not used in everyday speech. Frequently these words only appear in books.
When you read to your child, they will meet words that lay the foundation for their future comprehension and writing.

 

STRATEGIES:

  • Select books with quality language and read them over and over.
  • Discuss the meaning of words that your child may not understand.
  • Encourage your child to ask about the meaning of words that may be unfamiliar or unusual.

READING BOOKS TO YOUR CHILD HELPS TO DEVELOP COMPREHENSION

PURPOSE:
Having lots of quality books read, and reread, allows your child to:

  • learn about the various ways stories are constructed with an orientation, complication and resolution;
  • evaluate and empathise with a range of characters;
  • explore different places and times.

Good readers comprehend by thinking throughout the reading.

 

STRATEGIES:
Talk with your child as you read to activate the metacognitive strategies. Encourage them to:

  • predict – using cues in the book to guess what might come next;
  • make connections – thinking of something similar that they have read or done;
  • monitor – identifying any unfamiliar words and working out what they mean;
  • visualise – describing the pictures they have formed in their mind;
  • summarise – retelling the story or their favourite part.

THE BOOK YOU READ WITH A CHILD SHOULD NOT BE TOO DIFFICULT FOR THEM

PURPOSE:
Reading along with a child will help to:

  • improve fluency;
  • build reading pace;
  • develop great expression;
  • show that you value a book they can read.
 

STRATEGIES:

  • First, read aloud so your child can hear the correct expression.
  • Then, have your child read along with you so they can practise reading just like you.
  • Encourage your child to read the same book many times, reading it more fluently each time.
  • Make use of any book your child is familiar with and enjoys, as well as the readers your child’s school sends ETH以太坊_Mybit专业home.

READING, LIKE ALL SKILLS, GROWS WITH PRACTICE

PURPOSE:
Listening to your child read will:

  • build their reading confidence;
  • provide practice in using the link beween letters and sounds to work out words to develop automaticity and fluency;
  • encourage problem solving as unknown words and phrases are encountered with your guidance;
  • increase the prestige of reading in your relationship.
 

STRATEGIES:
To ensure your child experiences success and enjoyment:

  • choose a book that is a good fit; check that there are not too many words that they can’t sound out or recognise (no more than one error in twenty);
  • be gracious in hearing the same book read over and over to improve expression and fluency;
  • encourage them to read to grandparents and siblings either in person or through a device;
  • ask what books your child wants to read.

WHEN YOUR CHILD STRUGGLES WITH A WORD, USE THE FOUR STEP RULE:

  1. PAUSE: Pause for a few seconds to give them time to work it out.
  2. PROMPT: Prompt by asking them to say each sound or syllable.
  3. PRAISE: Praise when they have figured a word out.
  4. PROVIDE: If prompting doesn’t work, tell them the word.
