  • Encourage your child to use his/her finder to point to each word. 
  • Read a sentence and have your child repeat it.
  • Take turns reading a sentence each or a page each. 
  • Talk about the story as you read it.  What do you think will happen next?  What does this story remind you of?  How do you think this character feels?
  • Don't be afraid to read the same book again.  repeated reading helps build reading fluency!
