READ ON! READ ON!

There is a difference between reading fluency (the flow and speed of reading) and reading comprehension (understanding what was read). During reading instruction, students are encouraged to make a movie in their mind. The “movie” tells the story; it reinforces the students’ comprehension or understanding of what they have read. Below you will find tips for families to encourage their students to read:

  • Let your child see you reading every day, so that he or she understands the importance of learning to read well. Modeling matters.
  • Read to your child.
  • Read with your child.
  • Have your child read to you or another family member.
  • Encourage your child to keep a journal of daily events.
  • Keep books available to your child, and make regular trips to the Neptune Library.
  • When you shop for groceries, have your child help you find items and then estimate the cost of the purchase.
  • Discuss different kinds of jobs and careers in your community to help your child understand that school prepares them for a career.
  • Visit museums, zoos and city art exhibits with your child.
  • Help your child identify and set fitness goals. Make walking, hiking or biking a family activity.
  • Talk to your child about the importance of education.
  • Maintain contact with your child’s teacher.
  • Monitor your child’s progress.
  • Attend your parent conference the first week of December.
  • Compliment your child’s work and success in school.
  • Make sure your child does each day’s homework assignment. Set aside a quiet place for homework and set a regular time each day for it.
  • Listen to music together, and have art materials (crayons, paint, brushes, pencils, paper) available at home.
