• Ways to Help Your Child Read Better

    1.  Read to your child.

    2. Listen to your child read to you nightly.

    3. Discuss with your child what she reads.  Story Elements are the basic structure of a narrative:  characters, setting, problem, main events, and solution.  Knowing this basic form allows a reader to focus on remembering this information.

    4.  When reading non-fiction, students should be able to recall the who, what, where, when, why, how about the topic.

    5.  Connect text to personal experiences.
