5 Adelaide Foundation Stage Library
Every Friday after school Your chance to take home a story book to share with your child.

6 Books the children read
Research has shown that when parents read with their child for minutes, four times a week, their children have much higher reading levels than those who don’t have this experience.

7 Preparing to read Have a regular special time when you read together 1:1 (after tea, at bed time, after breakfast) Turn the TV, radio, Xbox, iPod etc off. Sit with them Make predictions and links to their own experiences

8 During reading Praise their effort constantly.
Ask questions to check their understanding. Play word games. If children sound out make sure that they blend the sounds together to make a real word.

9 Phonics We can use these sounds to sound out words c a t d a d s i t

10 Different types of words
Decodable words Green words Tricky words Red words There are words that can be sounded out. These are words that cannot be sounded out on went man the I ran sad no VIDEO Tip 5: what to do when stuck

11 If they are stuck on a word
Don’t tell them the words straight away or they will get used to looking to you for the answer and not bother to apply strategies they know for reading. Pause - give them time to think about it Encourage them to sound out the phonemes (sounds). If they still can’t work out what the word says, then tell them what it is and reward their efforts with praise. Don’t make a fuss about mistakes - we all make them and it’s how we learn If they are struggling to read lots of the words then the book may be too difficult for them. In this case please see the class teacher - video clip Tip 4: Build confidence

12 After reading Always praise their efforts. Let them know how much progress they are making. Ask questions to reflect, recap and review. What happened in this book? Did you like the book? Was is a happy or sad ending? Did the end of the book surprise you? Developing confidence Tip 7: Convince them they're not stupid!

13 Encouraging reluctant readers
The children choose their reading book at school. Therefore they should choose books they want to read. It can take children time (years) to develop reading stamina. Therefore you can take turns reading a page each. Keep it fun, short and sweet is best (10 mins each day is enough) Make it a special time for you both. Let the teachers know if you are struggling to get your child reading. Encourage children to show off their reading to Dad, Granddad, a favourite teacher etc....
