Tips for Reading Practice

As children progress through the elementary grades, they will go from learning to read to reading to learn. That switch is a crucial component to your child's academic success, which is why educators focus so heavily on literacy in the curriculum. Literacy skills take lots of practice, but there are many enrichment activities that can help make learning to read enjoyable. Here are a few ideas for squeezing in reading practice at home.

  • For kids just starting out on their path to reading success, try these phonics worksheets that provide guided practice with vowel-consonant-vowel words, short and long vowels, and sight words.
  • For kids learning how to make predictions about a text, encourage them to look at a book's cover. What do they think the book will be about based on what they see?
  • Encourage kids to use a strip of card stock as a bookmark and write on it words they don't know in a text. Then, help them look up the words in the dictionary to reinforce vocabulary skills.
  • Make trips to the library a regular part of your family's monthly (or weekly!) errands. Exposure to books is considered the most important thing parents can do to encourage young readers. It will also help support literary analysis skills in the older grades.
