Top Tips for Helping Your Child Read at Home

  • Set aside a few minutes each night to read with your child.
  • Encourage them to hold the book and turn the pages one at a time. 
  • Talk about the pictures in the book - make links to familiar experiences, what is happening on the page, how to the characters feel and why, what do they think might happen next.
  • Read the book to them with the children joining in with any repeated phrases.
  • Once they are familiar with the book, let them read a word on each page using their phonics to sound out and blend.
  • Then move on to the children reading a few words / a sentence.
  • Don't be afraid to read the same book several times.  Repeated reading helps to build confidence and reading fluency!

Suggested Reading pattern with a Book:

Day 1 - Look at the book together and talk about the pictures.

Day 2 - Adult to read the book (if it has words) or model telling a story (if it doesn't have words)

Day 3 - Child to have a go at telling the story using the pictures, in their own words.

Day 4 - Child to have a go at reading some of the words using their phonics skills.

Day 5 - Change the book - you can do yourself in the classroom in the mornings when  you drop your child off at school.
