Need to teach parents a crash course in how to help their child at home with reading? Let these bookmarks help you! Great for sending home or using in literature circles run by parent volunteers.
TRY ASKING THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS WHEN YOUR CHILD MAKES AN ERROR:
Did that make sense?
Did that sound right to you?
Instead of “sound it out,” try something more specific like, “I see a ’t’n the middle of that word, what sound does a ’t’make?” Or “I notice you’re saying a /k/ sound, do you see a ‘k’ there?”
TRY ASKING THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS DURING /AFTER READING TOGETHER:
What do you think will happen next? Why?
What was your favorite part? Why?
What happened first? Next? After that?
Can you make a text to text, text to self, or text to world connection? What does this story remind you of?
