• There are a number of things that you can do at home to help support your child's reading progress.
    Here are some suggestions:
     * Set a goal for your child to read with you or independently for at least 20 minutes a day.
     * Help your child find books that are at an appropriate reading level. Please contact me about how to use your child's SRI results to identify books at the appropriate reading level.
     * Make connections between your child's interests and books to read. For example, if your child likes animals, try to locate books on animals, both fiction and nonfiction.
     * Try to spend time every day with your child looking through “nonbook” reading materials, such as websites, pieces of mail, advertisements, and food labels, to demonstrate how important a part reading plays in daily life.
     * Consider sharing with your child the kinds of things you are reading. Tell your child about interesting things you read in the newspaper, or about a magazine article that taught you something new.
