how can i help my daugther learn to read?

  • 1st grade Reading -

    Read to her and with her. Show that you enjoy reading and help her to enjoy it. Praise accurate reading responses.

    However, if there is a specific problem, you might seek professional help. Start at the school.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

    Learning to read is a very important concept for children. It determines their success in school, because most of the students who do not do well, have difficulty in reading.

    First, read to her - a lot! At least 30min/day - maybe afternoon when she gets home from school and in the evening before she goes to bed. Make it a fun time, where you snuggle together. You can point out letters of simple words and help her to decode them by sounding them out with her. You can also let her read simple words in the story that repeat a lot - and, of, it, she, the, or the name of the main character. Make it fun, and reward her efforts with a hug to encourage her to continue. There are a lot of programs out there for reading, but adding simple books that are mostly phonetic, to your list of items to read to her will help just as well. Read a variety of books, and let her choose some for herself.
    By the way, do you read? Children will imitate their parents. When I have tutored children who are having trouble with their reading, it has always been true that when I went to their home there were no reading materials lying about and the parents were not readers. If you enjoy reading and read a variety of materials, your child will be more likely to read well (and enjoy reading!) themselves.

    you could help her first on vocabulary and spelling.
    then you could start getting into stories and you can go to these websites.

  • 1st grade -

    Read to her a couple of times then tell her reading is like one of the best things in the world then say its your turn to read

  • 1st grade -

    Open a book and read

  • 1st grade -

    Let me share with you with. For 1st grader, Dr. Suess story books are really good. Take one book from school or public library or you can buy one. You need to first get the child with you for reading. You may do that by giving him or her favorite things like toys or chocolates if they sits with you. You also promise him or her to their favorite places if they do good by sitting with you to read. Then start reading with the child. Encourage the child to read by himself. It is very hard in the beginning . But don't give up. In the beginning it could be 10 minutes, then make it to 15 minutes then gradually you may increase this time. Hope this helps.

    Some schools offer progras where they can have a tutor come and help your child, or set them up with KUMON it's a great program that also helps with math and reading of course.Speak to your childs teacher and principal to see if the teacher will promote your child to read or try to read during the free time of his/her day.
