The Importance Of Reading At Home With Your Child 

Reading Graphic


Three ways you can help build fluency at home

  1. Read and follow – the adult reads the text and the child follows along with their finger. This helps the child with word recognition and models to them how they should read with fluency.

  2. My turn, your turn – take turns reading a page or a paragraph. Here you are modelling how to read with fluency, flow and expression.

  3. Echo Reading – as you read, the child copies. It is important here to pace yourself and read at a rate that your child can keep up with.
