Take-Home Books

Posted by Kimberly Formus on 10/14/2016

Every day your child will bring home a baggie with one or two books to practice reading at home. Sometimes it will be an easy read, and sometimes it will be a little more difficult.

On easy days, please practice fluency and expression. Make sure to pause and take mini-breaths at periods, read "like an actor" when a character is speaking, and phrasing words together so it sounds more natural.

On the more difficult days, focus on word decoding. Ask questions like "Does that look right?" and "Does that make sense?" Try not to correct them right away if they make a mistake. Wait until the end of the sentence or the page to see if they can self correct and find the mistake themselves.

As always, you can check back here for more tips! Thank you for your support at home!
