How To Help Your Child Improve in Reading Fluency and Comprehension at Home

Two things happen when we read. Our brains decode combinations of letters into words and then understanding is constructed of what was decoded or read. When brains have to work industriously to decode the words, comprehension, or the understanding of the idea represented by the combinations of words, does not occur. There are several simple things parents can do with their children which result in huge outcomes in their children's lives.

Read to your children. Have your children read to you. Have your child retell the story you or he read. Practice sight words so that your child will master fluency skills, thus improving comprehension skills. Talk about what was read. These simple tasks will result in strong readers.

Use these videos with your child to reinforce reading and recognition of sight words.
