How to read together.

Read together when your child is not tired or hungry.

Find a special place to read together.

Keep your books together in your book bag.

Talk about the book/title/author/cover/blurb.

If the child is reading a library book, use the "five finger rule" to ascertain whether it is at the right level for them. (school readers have the reading level written on the back of them).

Pause,prompt, praise all through the book.

If you or your child gets frustrated, stop and take a rest. Come back to reading later on.

Make it a postive experience for you both.

We look forward to helping to make reading together a positive learning experience for you and your family.
