13 Helping your child read Let your child hold the book and turn the pages.If your child makes a mistake let them get to the end of the sentence before saying anything. See if they can correct themselves.If your child gets stuck give them time to think before helping. Tell them to try:look carefully at the letters in the wordSay the sounds and read the word (not all words can be sounded out )Think what word would make senseEncourage your child to read the sentence again and have another go4.If your child cannot work out the word then tell them. Don’t let them struggle.5. Praise your child, say what was good ’well done you knew it did not make sense and you went back and put it right’ or ‘I like the way you read that with good expression and used the full stops to help you’.6. If your child has difficulties prompt with one of the following questions:-Does that make sense?-what would make sense?-What is happening?-Check the letters-Does that word look right?Remember: Reading the same book several times will help your child read fluently with pleasure.If your child is reading slowly, read the book together so that they feel they can read fluently.

15 Before reading:Tell your child the title of the book, pointing to the wordsWhat can you see on the front cover?What do you think the book is going to be about?Who is in the story?Why do you think that?During reading- do not ask too many questions while readingWhat do you thinking is happening here?What might this mean?What do you think will happen on the next page?After ReadingWhich was your favourite part of the book?Where does the story take place?Do you know another story like this?What would you have done?Are there any words that tell you what the character is like?

19 High frequency word games We teach children to recognise words on sight:To make them more fluent when they read.They cannot sound out every word.To improve their reading confidence.To prevent them from losing interestTo prevent the book from losing meaning as it requires lots of decodingGame to help:Small cards with words your child is learning written on them. Turn cards face down and match pairs that say the same.Post box-Using a box with a slit post sight words in when they can read. Have a competition each day to see if they can recognise more words. Make it funBeat the clock-Ask your child to write a target word. Let them write the word in the air and learn it. When the word is correct ask your child to see how many times they can write it in one minute.Rocket game-Draw a rocket track. Child picks up a word and reads it. If its correct they move their counter up the rocket till they blast off.
20 Sentence Work:Choose a sentence from the story and write it down.Cut up the sentencePlace the words in front of your child and let your child putthe sentence back togetherDo not help your child or interruptWhen they have finished ask your child to read the sentence back to you.Correct errors and reread sentenceChild can then close their eyes while you take a word away and close the gap.Tell your child to reread sentence and tell you which word ismissing.Put word back and reread.Rereading is a good strategy that children use when their reading does not make sense.A more able reader could add more exciting words to the sentence to make it interesting.
