FOR PARENTS >>
Reading to your child and listening to him read are two of the most important things you can do to raise a strong, enthusiastic reader.
A good reader doesn’t necessarily know every word or immediately understand everything he or she reads. He or she does know STRATEGIES for figuring out unfamiliar words and understanding difficult material. Encourage your student to work these into her reading routine:
