    Reading with Your Child
    Ideas for Reading with your Student

  
                          Kindergartener:
  • Encourage your student to describe pictures and use the pictures to retell the story
  • Allow them to pick out words that they know
  • Ask questions about the story and allow your student enough "think" time to answer
  • Show interest in your student's reactions to stories by commenting on what they say or by asking questions based on their reactions
  • Have a variety of reading materials available throughout the house.
First Grader:
  • Have them point to the title, title page, spine, call number, barcode, author and illustrator
  • Ask them to do a short "commercial" about the story when you have finished (include the main character and events)
  • Ask how they might end the story differently
  • Find out if they would have made the same choice as the main character and, if not, how and why their choice would be different
  • What was their favorite and/or least favorite part of the story and why
  • Make reading a fun and special time for you and your student
Second Grader
  • Allow your Second Grader to choose the book or topic
  • One way to get your student to read is for them to see you reading
  • Allow your student to read a recipe as you cook
  • Allow your student to read the comics
  • Discuss a story with your student by asking them open-ended questions such as: What did you like/not like about the main character?; do any of the characters remind you of anyone you know?; have you ever had a problem like the character?; how would you have solved the problem differently than the main character?
Third  & Fourth Grader:  
  • Have a variety of reading materials around the house
  • Discuss the setting, characters, problem, resolution, etc.
  • Set aside a special time for your family to read
  • Have your student discuss or write about the story from a different point of view other than that of the main character
  • Read out loud to your student
