Helping your child read!



The Panel found that a combination of techniques is effective for teaching children to read:

  • Phonemic awareness—the knowledge that spoken words can be broken apart into smaller segments of sound known as phonemes. Children who are read to at home—especially material that rhymes—often develop the basis of phonemic awareness. Children who are not read to will probably need to be taught that words can be broken apart into smaller sounds.
  • Phonics—the knowledge that letters of the alphabet represent phonemes, and that these sounds are blended together to form written words. Readers who are skilled in phonics can sound out words they haven't seen before, without first having to memorize them.
  • Fluency—the ability to recognize words easily, read with greater speed, accuracy, and expression, and to better understand what is read. Children gain fluency by practicing reading until the process becomes automatic; guided oral repeated reading is one approach to helping children become fluent readers.
  • Guided oral reading—reading out loud while getting guidance and feedback from skilled readers. The combination of practice and feedback promotes reading fluency.
  • Teaching vocabulary words—teaching new words, either as they appear in text, or by introducing new words separately. This type of instruction also aids reading ability.
  • Reading comprehension strategies—techniques for helping individuals to understand what they read. Such techniques involve having students summarize what they've read, to gain a better understanding of the material.

When parents are engaged, students receive higher grades and test scores and therefore have a better chance of graduating from high school and going on to post-secondary education. 
When parents are engaged, students have better attendance, increased motivation, better self-esteem, and fewer behavioral issues so they are actually present in school to learn.
When parents are engaged, they have more confidence in the school and hold higher expectations and opinions of the teachers.
When parents are engaged, they feel more confident in their abilities and are more likely to continue their own education.
When parents are engaged, teachers feel better about themselves and their job; this translates into higher student achievement. When teachers feel supported and valued by the parents their morale improves.
When parents invest in a relationship with their children's school, the school has a better reputation in the community which increases the interest and involvement of community stakeholders.
