Reading at Home...
Can Make A HUGE Difference
 
Choose books that are at an appropriate reading level for your child
  • Use the five finger rule. Open the book to any page and ask your child to read. Put up a finger every time your child does not know a word. If you have put up more than five fingers before the end of the page, this book is too hard for your child. 
  • Choose books that match your child's likes and interests.
