First, you need to make sure he is comprehending what he is reading. When he reads orally, ask questions. See if he can compare anything he is reading to his life. For example, Do you know anyone like this character? Have you ever done anything like this? How does she feel when this happens? When you are satisfied that he understands what he is reading. Have him read a page silently and ask him what he read. If he can tell you. Then he is ready to read a little more. Keep asking him comprehension questions. I am sure he will do great!!
