Read aloud daily to your child. Your child might be ready for you to read a chapter book aloud, a chapter or two each night. Children also enjoy wordless picture books, picture books, nonfiction, and joke books.
Provide time each night for your child to read on his or her own.
Help your child find “just right” books at his/her reading level.
Ask your child to make predictions as you read a story and to retell the story you read together.
Encourage your child to make meaning while they read. (Does it sound right? Does it look right? Does it make sense?)
