What the Expert Says:

Hi! Does your family have an iPad? There sure some wonderful reading apps to encourage students.
First, I would encourage any reading materials from comic books to her favorite magazine.
You can also begin with audiobooks. She may enjoy hearing stories.
Has her teacher spoken to you? Does she have fluency difficulty?
Try taking turns reading with your daughter... Making it into a game.

I hope this helps.
