Literacy Corner:  Ways to Support Literacy at Home!

Reading, and a love for reading, starts at home. Here are a few tips to help your student become a successful reader: 

  1. Read it again and again! It’s ok to read your child’s favorite book many times. Help them become more accurate and quick.
  2. Dig deeper into the story. Ask questions about what they just read.
  3. Read words one more time with feeling.
  4. Make books special. Go on trips to the library, have a special place in your house to read, give books as gifts.
  5. Talk, Talk, Talk! Talk to your child and use interesting words. This helps build vocabulary and comprehension. 


Thayne Volunteer Committee:  There are several things in the planning stages for October including Halloween recycled hallway decor and classroom door decorating contest.  Click here for more information.
