are some basic reading skills which you can cultivate in your children.
Phonics rules show
kids that letters equal sounds. Unlike some languages, English has
numerous exceptions. Because of this, phonics should be taught as one way of recognizing a
word or learning a
new word. It serves as a foundation. Learn basic phonics under early readers.
Children excel in reading when they fully engage in
the story. They look at pictures or think about the plot, ask questions
aloud or to themselves. When children engage, they are focused, which
leads to strong reading
Scanning: Besides being able
read every word, scanning (being able to find a word on a page) is a
great skill for both early readers and higher level readers. It is a necessary skill for answering detail-questions.
Appropriate Speed: Children can read
either too slowly or too
quickly. If a child reads too slowly (more slowly than is actually
possible), the reading process becomes boring.
This leads to a dislike of reading. Also, if a child reads quickly
without using any recall techniques,
reading comprehension can go down. Doing timed readings can be a great way to help your child engage in reading.
Vocabulary-building: Once the
reading process is going smoothly, students need to keep up with
vocabulary in order to gain excellent language arts skills. All of the
stories in the intermediate section are paired with vocabulary pages. SAT vocabulary practice is found in the advanced reader section.
