The number one thing you can do to help your child become a better reader, is to read to them and with them! If your child embraces the magic of reading, you are more than halfway there. Make it a fun family time, read a book to your child, trade off reading pages/words, encourage and praise your child as he/she reads.
Remember to read daily to your child and, if you would like, you can have your child access one of these home learning sites for additional support.

Below you will find a parent's guide to the DIBELS assessment.
Contact your child's teacher to discuss your child's progress and get ideas on how to help your son or daughter with their reading fluency at home.
