Literacy Tips to Help YOur CHild AT Home
If your child gets stuck on a word while reading a book. Please try these strategies:
- Look at the pictures.
- Say the first few sounds of the new word.
- Stretch the word out slowly.
- Look for a chunk that you know (-at, -an)
- Skip the word, read to the end of the sentence, hop back and READ IT, READ IT!
- Try to re- read the sentence, try a word that makes sense
- Ask for help (after you have tried all the other strategies)
