We have reached the end of our first study of reading! As a way to help your child, you can ask them to tell you about our "Old Favorites". These will be storybooks that your child has read many times and is very familiar with. Also, while reading any book, you can discuss the characters, the setting, the main idea.
Here is our anchor chart for this:
How to Make an Old Favorite
1. Find a storybook and a person you love.
2. Ask, "Will you read this to me, please?"
3. Say, "Read it again," every time it is over.
4. Listen really closely.
5. YOU read it!
Our red words for next week will be see, at, and he. We will have a red word assessment next Friday on all of our red words. Please review these with your child throughout the week.
Another way to help your child with reading is to practice rhyming words. The classic Dr. Seuss books are wonderful to use! You can also do this just in talking by playing the "rhyming game". You say a word and have them to think of a word that will rhyme.
