It is vital that families and teachers work together to support struggling readers. Have you ever asked yourself or your teacher, "What can I do at home to help support my child in reading?" Here is a link to several "family friendly" reading interventions. The interventions are designed to support different needs and readers. Here are the four areas of need: Comprehension, Fluency, Accuracy, and Engagement/ Motivation.
The interventions suggested are a great addition to your family involvement. But, wide reading is the best predictor of student literacy success. Your child should read "good fit" books every night for 20-30 minutes. Beginning readers need to be read to. If your child has a favorite book, maybe you and your child alternate reading pages. Even more sophisticated readers enjoy being read to or reading aloud to a family member.
