Reading Aloud

Reading books with your child is an oldie but goodie. It's a great thing to continue to do while your child is going to school. Snuggling up with a great book is a way to connect with your child. Plus, you can show your child what great reading looks and sounds like when you read to them. These Reading Rocket activities provide ideas to interact with what you read.

Your child may need some support with building skills. This may include memorizing words that are used a lot. Your child may still be working on sounding out certain combinations of letters. The Florida Department of Education has some great resources on building skills at home with your child. Your child’s teacher may also suggest some fun activities you and your child can do at home.
