Best practices in reading
Best practices in reading

  • Reading for at least 20 minutes per day maintains reading level for most students.

  • Reading is most effective and meaningful when the child can discuss the reading with someone.

  • Reading a variety of genres, including nonfiction literature, contributes to a student’s background knowledge that can be applied to a future reading experience.

  • Use the “five word/finger per 100 words” guide to help choose a “just right” book.

  • Combining reading and writing strengthens both areas and makes the experience more meaningful and memorable.

  • Make reading fun, not a chore.
