Tips to Help Your Child Improve Their Reading Proficiency

A student’s reading proficiency can be a determining factor in the type of academic opportunities they are eligible for. If your student struggles with their reading, below are some tips from The Tutoring Center, Cypress TX which can help.

Kitchen Helpers

Instead of your children sitting on the couch and watching TV or playing video games while you prepare dinner, invite them to join and help you. As you use pre-prepared ingredients, ask your children to read aloud the ingredients list on the label. When your child is reading on their own and they encounter a new word, they will attempt to spell it out. While this is a great technique, it is only as powerful as your child’s exposure to a range of letter-sound combinations. While the words on the label won’t form part of your child’s everyday speech, they will expose them to a great selection of letter-sound combinations while you are there to correct them, which can help them learn alone.

Yes, Junk Mail!

Physical mail such as promotional materials and bank notices just don’t seem to have disappeared as much as you thought they would when you signed up for email. However, instead of discarding these items or barely giving them a glance, hand them to your children and ask them to read each one aloud as you complete errands or prepare a meal. While the letters and flyers may not seem educational, they give your children exposure to a range of writing styles and word choices, not only helping to improve their reading proficiency but also their writing skills.
