What parents can do to help at home

  • Support and encourage your child. Realize that he or she is likely frustrated by reading.
  • Check with your child's teachers to find out their assessment of your child's word decoding skills.
  • If your child can decode words well, help him or her build speed and accuracy by:
    • Reading aloud and having your child match his voice to yours
    • Having your child practice reading the same list of words, phrase, or short passages several times
    • Reminding your child to pause between sentences and phrases
  • Read aloud to your child to provide an example of how fluent reading sounds.
  • Give your child books with predictable vocabulary and clear rhythmic patterns so the child can "hear" the sound of fluent reading as he or she reads the book aloud.
  • Use books on tapes; have the child follow along in the print copy.


Fluency Phrases

To the left the Locker are 6 different sets of phrases or sentences to help your child to read faster. Each set has 40 to 50 slides in the power point. Having the phrases on power point helps the child be able to click through the phrases over and over again, to be able to read at his/her own speed, and to be able to increase speed as recognition is built. Practicing a lot of times and on many occasions helps to build fluency. You can choose slide show at the top for the powerpoint to take up the entire screen.
