BUILDING A READER AT HOME: Students should spend 20 minutes reading each night. For beginning readers or non readers this includes being read to by a parent. Students who are already reading independently are focusing on comprehension strategies. Try this with your child...before and during reading ask children to think about what will happen next. After reading confirm or revise predictions.
