I am a huge fan of teaching my kids phonics but there some words that just don’t make sense phonetically to a five-year-old. I put together this really fun sight word printable to use to reinforce the sight words with my son and I have made them available to you as well. I also wanted to help with some tips on how to teach sight words. I hope this can help you make the most of your sight word lessons.
I have always been an avid reader. In fact, my dream day includes curling up with a great dystopian novel and reading for the entire day. Lately, my daughter has discovered a love for reading. However, finding a series that will both captivate her interest and stay appropriate for her age has been an adventure. I decided to save you some time and research and share 10 great book series for 3rd graders. If you have another one you think should be added leave me a comment.
Summer is just around the corner. Often kids get excited for a break from the constant book work and homework. Sometimes the excitement to be out of school leads to a summer without any reading. This can mean a decline in reading ability and reduce the chance that your child will become a better reader. Encouraging a child to read can be difficult but so rewarding. R struggled with reading quite a bit 2 summers ago. I had her read a page to me daily. By the end of the summer, she was a much stronger reader. She also had a lot of confidence going into the new school year. I have put together 6 tips for you so that you make summer reading fun.
