More Reading Help

Sometimes children need more help with reading than they can get in the time they are in the classroom at school. If your child needs more help, you can ask the teacher what your child needs help with and how you can help him.
After you have talked to the teacher, here are some other ways you can help your child to improve his reading skills. The more practice your child gets, the better he will read, and the better he reads, the more he will want to read.
You may also want to check out the teacher’s portion of this website to see what teachers are doing in the classroom to help your child build his reading skills.
