Reading Success  

 

Dear parents/guardians,

Just as your child is reading at school, they should also be reading a book of their choice at home. Here are a few helpful tips to ensure your child’s reading success in class and at home

1. TALK TO YOUR CHILD ABOUT THE READING

Your student as assigned reading every day. Get involved in their classwork at home and academic progress by talking to your child about their daily reading!

2. PROVIDE A QUIET TIME AND SPACE FOR READING

Make sure there is time and place each night where your child can focus on reading. Turn off television, video games, and the Internet for reading time.

3. ENGAGE IN CONVERSATION ABOUT READING

Ask your child to tell you about his or her book:

- Avoid the question, “Did you do your reading today?”

- Replace it with, “What happened in your book today?”

- Show interest by asking follow-up questions about the story, its characters, and conflicts.

- Ask your child what he or she thinks of the characters in the book, or the book in general.

This is a wonderful, neutral way to have conversations with adolescents about a wide variety of issues, as they become more independent.

4. DEVELOP A RELATIONSHIP AROUND BOOKS

The following activities can help build rich relationships with your child around reading that will increase his or her motivation to read:

- Find out what kind of books your child enjoys. Take a trip to a bookstore or library to select exciting new books to read.

- Read together. Have your child read aloud to you, or read aloud to him or her from the chosen book.

- Share a book you are reading or have read with your child.

- Read silently at the same time. When your child reads his or her book, take out your book and read in a quiet place together. Then have a conversation about what you are reading.

 

I hope you all find a new love for books and reading.

Enjoy!

Mrs. Allinder
