• Reading
    Your child reads at school every day with materials such as:
    • Environmental print
    • Poetry
    • Personal name
    • Wordless Picture Books
    • Stories with words
    • Predictable Patterned Text
    After reading a story with your child, please help secure comprehension by:
    • Retelling the story
                 Is your child able to recall specific details about the beginning,
                 middle and end of the story?
    • Discussing the characters
    • Identifying where the story took place

    Things that help:

    • Read every day at home.
               Reading daily at home between 15 and 20 minutes will help strengthen
               and improve your child's reading ability and help establish a homework routine, too.
    • Practice reading, spelling and writing the Kindergarten In-a-Snap Word
