Reading Activity and Reading Strategies

Here is a fun interactive reading game called “Book Bingo”. This game, which was created by our reading specialist, gets your child excited and motivated to read. If your child completes 10 or more activities and brings it back to school with a parent signature, they will be given a prize!

 As your child is reading, here are some reading strategies that will help your child succeed.

To help your child pronounce or figure out a word, have them use these strategies:

  • Look at the picture
  • Get their mouth ready to make the first sound of the word
  • Sound out the word
  • Reread
  • Skip the word, use context clues to help them figure out what the word may be, go back to the word, and see if it makes sense.
  • Look at the vowels
  • Think of a word that might rhyme with the word they don’t know
  • Chunk it out

Here are some strategies that will help your child gain comprehension skills:

  • Reread the book
  • Use prior knowledge
  • Use context clues
  • Think aloud
  • Summarize the story
  • Think about what the story was mostly about
  • Think about the characters in the story

Using all of these strategies will help your child succeed in reading.
