Here is a secret: You cannot “teach” a child to read. All parents do is provide skills for their children to apply when they are ready. Reading is like a light bulb; it just turns on one day. The good news is that there are so many ways to encourage this skill and you do not have to be a teacher to do it!
This tele-class will provide ways to increase your child’s early reading and comprehension skills. It will address such questions as:
- How can I foster literacy (beginning letters/sounds at home) without it feeling like “school”?
- How can I get my child more interested in books/reading?
- What are some interesting ways to practice spelling and identify sight words over the summer?
And much more!
