Reading at home daily is an essential part of developing young readers. Reading twenty minutes a night is part of the homework expectations for second grade. There are a variety of ways to spend your time reading at home. Here are just a few ideas:
Reading independently (not too hard or not too easy... just right).
Take turns reading with your child. You read one page, they read one page.
Reading to your child is extremely valuable for your child to hear natural rhythms and expressions. This is perfect if your child finds a book they really wants to read that is above their level.
Read together as a family. Gather members of your family together in a room with reading materials. Children who see reading at home are more likely to pick up a book themselves.
Read in new places around the house or establish a cozy reading nook.
Read with expression. Make up voices for different characters.
Read to stuffed animals.
Read online or on a device (iPod, iPad, Nook etc).
It’s always a good idea to ask your child comprehension questions about what they just read. Building those comprehension skills is so important.Here is a list of questions (pick a few per book).
