BUILDING A READER AT HOME Explore books? Give your child an opportunity to explore books. Visit a library or bookstore and help them find topics that interest them. READ! READ! READ! Make sure to read for at least 30 minutes per day. They can read independently, aloud to an adult, or with a partner. Ask Questions! *Make Predictions, *Characters, *Main Idea, *Problem/Solution, *Retell the Story/Summarize, *Genre, *Moral Make it FUN! Reading shouldn’t be a chore. Discuss books with your child and do book activities together. Be an example! Children learn by example so let your child see you read…whether it be a book, newspaper, cookbook, etc. Pick “Good Fit” Books! Select books that meet the following requirements: Can they understand what they are reading? Can they retell the story? Do they know most of the words?
