Parents Are Influential In Reading Levels

Five Strategies to Help Improve Students’ Reading Levels

1. Read all the time.

The more students read, the more likely they will see their reading levels go up. Make reading something the student does as often as possible.

2. Read out loud.

Students who struggle with reading may benefit from hearing others read. In addition to reading to students, give them the opportunity to read out loud.

3. Read it again.

Re-reading the same sections over again can help a student become more comfortable with his or her reading abilities and help them become more familiar with key vocabulary words.

4. Talk about reading.

Simply asking a child what they thought about a book or to share their favorite part of a book can be truly beneficial.

5. Find the right book.

Sometimes a student’s biggest problem when it comes to reading is that reading simply isn’t fun. In other words, if your student says reading is boring, they may just need a new book.
