Reading is more than understanding print matter. It involves making meaning from a variety of texts including:
Phonics by itself is not enough Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosnt mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteers are in the rghit pclae: the rset can be a toatl mses but you can still raed it wouthit a porbelm. This is bcuseae we dont raed ervey lteter but the word as a wlohe.
What can I do to help? Strong oral language is the foundation of successful reading. Talk is central to all aspects of literacy development. Model reading to your child. It is important for your child to see you reading for real purposes and enjoyment. Continue to read to your children even when they can read independently. Make a time in your daily routine when you and your child are relaxed, to read together. This reading time (10 15 minutes each day) should not be stressful, rushed or tested. Support your childs reading choices. Find ways to read texts that they want to read. This may include comic books, computer programs, graphic novels or magazines. Remember, easier texts help children to automatize reading strategies and skills, allowing for deeper comprehension and understanding to occur. Promote reading. Use books, audio books and electronic books as rewards, gifts and incentives.
