Reading Roundup

Reading Round Up!

We are the Spud Time Literacy Teachers: Meet Stephanie McNab, Katy Miller and Tori Ridlon. We will be working with students in Kindergarten through Grade 4. Ms. Miller will also work with math groups.

 Inspire your young reader and writer to practice every day! The tips below offer some fun ways you can help your child become a happy and confident reader and writer. Try a new tip each week. See what works best for your child.

  • I read to you, you read to me. Take turns reading aloud at bedtime. Kids enjoy this special time with their parents.

  • Create a writing toolbox. Fill a box with drawing and writing materials. Find opportunities for your child to write, such as the shopping list, thank you notes, or birthday cards.

  • Gently correct your young reader. When your child makes a mistake, gently point out the letters he or she overlooked or read incorrectly. Many beginning readers will guess wildly at a word based on its first letter. 

  • Be your child’s #1 fan. Ask your child to read aloud what he or she has written for school. Be an enthusiastic listener.
