The best way to help your child at home is to read with them daily. It is recommend that children read at least 20 minutes a day. I know this can be challenging with work and sports schedules and multiple children. Here are a few tips.
* Some days you read to your child aloud. Let them see the words and maybe point to a work here and there that they can decode or read.
* Let them read to a pet. Reading is reading! Your cat or dog isn't going to judge your child for misreading a word.
* Read some directions together while cooking dinner or packing lunches. Showing children other real life examples of reading is really important.
* Allow your child to go onto Raz Kids and Starfall. The kids love these sites and can manage them themselves.
