The only way he can get better at reading is reading himself. So instead of you reading him a bedtime story, make him read it instead. Also bring him to the library over the summer every week and let HIM pick the book(s) he wants to read that way he'll be interested in reading. And if he doesn't want to always read don't make him because he wont like it and he'll think of it as punishment, and you want him to think  of it as fun. If after that he is still not doing ok in reading, you might want to think about getting a tutor.

First he needs to have had a solid foundation in place from Kindergarten. He should know his letter names and sounds with automoticity, reading and saying them the fast way. He should know word families, (at, an, am, en, et, ed, in, it, ip, ot, op, ob, up, ut, un etc., know how to stretch and shrink a word-decode the sounds and blend into one word. This is very important in Kindergarten. Children need to reach mastery with these skills in order to become a strong reader.Also should know minimum of at least 200 sight words which you can get on the internet. Most of these words you cannot sound out-they have no meaning out of context but then... there are some you can sound out like no, on, it, is. These are also on internet. Books you should have him read are Dr. Seuss books. They rhyme, use the imagination and are fun. My granddaughter is 21 months and already is rhyming and reading simple sight words from the books. Eric Carle,  Rosemary Wells, DePaola are other great children authors I have enjoyed. Great pictures, repetitive words and phrases are great in helping any child learn how to read. Best to you and your son. He can do it.

Read colourful story books with pictures. Use theme which interests him.While reading let him put his finger on the words you are reading. Let him read with you in between.Gradually encourage him to read the whole story on his own.Don't force him to read.Put new words read each day on the soft board in his room.Enjoy reading! Use change of voice,tone and volume to make it interesting for him.

Start with phonic sounds. then word famalies and then simple story books . Hop on Pop by Dr Seuss can give a good start and then move on to Green eggs and Ham for sight words. After these two books go for One fish Two fish red fish by Dr Seuss.Make flast cards of the difficult words and read them over and over again. Hope this helps!!
