Does your student need extra Reading Practice? 
Learning to read is made up of 5 key areas.  Listed below are the key areas and some simple things families can do at home to help your child in each of these areas.  

Phonemic Awareness-  Phonemic Awareness is the ability to distinguish, produce, remember and manipulate sounds in words.   This is the basic building block of reading.  

How to help at home:  Play games to rhyme words.  
Count the sounds in words.
Ask students to name the beginning sound in words like cat ("c").   Ask them to identify the ending sound ('t").  Ask them to identify the middle sound.  Ask them what sound they would change if they changed cat to hat ("c" to a "h").  

Phonics:  Phonics is the knowledge of letter or letter combinations and the sounds they create. It is also knowing syllables and word parts. 

How to help at home:  Use letter tiles to build words and practice sounding out or decoding the words. 

Fluency: The ability to read text with speed and accuracy

How to help at home:  Read each night for 20 minutes.

Vocabulary:  Knowledge of word meanings. 

How to help at home:  Include your child in conversations.  Use higher level words when speaking to your children.   Read to your child.  One of the best way to learn new vocabulary words is through read alouds.  

Comprehension: The complex process of understanding text through decoding, background knowledge and verbal reasoning. 
How to help at home:  Practice retelling Stories that were read.  Ask questions about stories as you read.
