    How to Help At Home With Reading  
    ■ Don’t leave home without it. Bring along a book or magazine any time your child has to wait, such as at a doctor's office. Always try to fit in reading! ■ Once is not enough. Encourage your child to re-read favorite books and poems. Re-reading helps kids read more quickly and accurately. ■ Dig deeper into the story. Ask your child questions about the story you've just read. Say something like, “Why do you think Clifford did that?” ■ Take control of the television. It's difficult for reading to compete with TV and video games. Encourage reading as a free-time activity. ■ Be patient. When your child is trying to sound out an unfamiliar word, give him or her time to do so. Remind to child to look closely at the first letter or letters of the word. ■ Pick books that are at the right level. Help your child pick books that are not too difficult. The aim is to give your child lots of successful reading experiences.
    ■ Play word games. Have your child sound out the word as you change it from mat to fat to sat; from sat to sag to sap; and from sap to sip. ■ I read to you,you read to me. Take turns reading aloud at bedtime. Kids enjoy this special time with their parents ■ Gently correct your young reader. When your child makes a mistake, gently point out the letters he or she overlooked or read incorrectly. Many beginning readers will guess wildly at a word based on its first letter. ■ Talk,talk,talk! Talk with your child every day about school and things going on around the house. Sprinkle some interesting words into the conversation, and build on words you’ve talked about in the past. ■ Write,write,write! Ask your child to help you write out the grocery list, a thank you note to Grandma, or to keep a journal of special things that happen at home. When writing, encourage your child to use the letter and sound patterns he is learning at school.

    Como Ayudar en Casa
    ■ No salga de su casa sin algo para leer Traiga consigo un libro o revista  para cada vez que su hijo o hija tenga que esperar, como en una visita al doctor. Siempre trate de encontrar tiempo para la lectura. ■ Una vez no es suficiente Motive a que su hijo vuelva a leer sus libros y poemas favoritos. El volver a leer las cosas ayuda a los niños a leer mejor y más rápido. ■ Profundice sobre el argumento Pregúntele a su hijo cosas sobre el cuento que acaban de leer. Diga algo como: “¿Por qué crees que Clifford hizo eso?” ■ Controle la televisión Es difícil que la lectura compita contra la televisión y los juegos de video. Por ello es necesario que motive la lectura como una actividad para “los ratos libres.” ■ Sea paciente Cuando sus hijos estén tratando de leer una palabra, déles tiempo para que lo hagan. Recuérdele mirar con atención la primera o primeras letras de la palabra. ■ Seleccione libros del nivel correcto Ayude a que su hijo no seleccione libros que sean demasiado difíciles. El objetivo es darle muchas experiencias exitosas en la lectura.
    ■ Juegue juegos de palabras Haga que sus hijos repitan los diferentes sonidos de palabras similares como bote y lote; ratón y botón; o poco y loco. ■ Yo lo leo y luego tú lo lees Tome turnos leyendo en voz alta a la hora de dormir. Los niños disfrutan de momentos especiales con sus papás. ■ Corrija gentilmente al joven lector Cuando su hijo cometa algún error, gentilmente señale la letra o letras que omitió o que leyó incorrectamente. Muchos lectores principiantes tratarán de adivinar la palabra basados en la primera letra. ■ ¡Hable,hable,hable! Hable con su hijo todos los días sobre la escuela y cosas de la casa. Use algunas palabras interesantes durante la conversación y recuérdele palabras que ya utilizaron en el pasado para que las aprenda y recuerde mejor. ■ ¡Escriba,escriba,escriba! Pídale a su hijo que le ayude a escribir la lista del supermercado, una nota para Abuelita o un diario de las cosas especiales que suceden en casa. Cuando esté escribiendo, trate que su hijo escriba las letras y sonidos que está aprendiendo en la escuela.

  • Silabas (Espanol)

    Padres,

    Favor de practicar las silabas antes de leer diariamente.  Estas son las silabas que los ninos debieron haber aprendido en kinder.  Aqui les mando una lista para que las practiquen.  Favor de practicarlas todas salteadas y no en orden.  Los estudiantes deben saber leer y escribir las silabas.

  • First Grade Sight Words

    Sight words are words that appear frequently in most of the text kids read, but can't easily be sounded out. Learning to recognize sight words through—you guessed it—sight is the easiest and quickest way for early readers to progress and become confident.
