- Students should read every night for 15-20 minutes.
- Be an active listener as your child reads. Allow him or her to use strategies to solve unfamiliar words and praise him or her for success. Have a conversation about the book to monitor and build comprehension.
- Encourage your child to reread books multiple times. He or she may enjoy reading to several friends or family members (even over the phone or via Skype!). Praise your child for maintaining fluency (accuracy, rate and expression) while reading aloud.
