Reading Tips

When we think of reading we naturally think of books. However, reading can happen anywhere and anytime: shopping lists, street signs, recipes, assembly directions, grocery shopping, and driving directions.


Print also comes in many formats beyond traditional books: magazines, e-readers, newspapers, cereal boxes, mad libs, and comic books. Providing a variety of reading materials can keep the "pressure" of reading practice low without reducing your child's exposure to print. For struggling readers, choosing a more simple text can help increase their fluency.


Once we get started your student will be bringing home a book, worksheet, or file folder game each night. These are not meant to be hard or take a long time. They are simply meant to keep kids reading and working on those foundational reading skills that are so important.
