Reading at Home
Making reading a part of your child´s daily routine can really support their literacy and wellbeing.
You could read together, read out loud in turns. Your child can also read to a younger sibling. When reading with your child, try to keep the reading sessions fun and relaxed, use different voices, and try to act scenes. Ask questions and discuss the storyline, characters, language, setting. Guess and predict what is going to happen.
Email through particular success stories or moments to Mr. Opoku, Assistant Principal for Literacy firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that your student is rewarded with Knowledge, Integrity and Resilience points when they return to school!
After finishing a book, your child can take a quiz on Accelerated Reader. Visit the Accelerated Reader website. Your child then needs to click ‘Student’ before entering their username and password. They should know this from school. If there are any issues logging onto Accelerated Reader, please contact Mr. Opoku on email@example.com. Download a 'reading at home' letter with other ideas too.
