KIDZ BOOK HUB NEWSLETTER MAY 2020 What’s new at Kidz Book Hub BLM 10 Page  5 Parent Guide Materials Assess Now Parent Guide How you can help your child as a reader • Before beginning to read, turn off the TV and computer and settle in somewhere comfortable. • Read to and with your child as often as you can and encourage her/him to join in. Vary the type of books, for example, short stories, poems, and longer stories read in chapters. • Build up a collection of favorites – your child will want to revisit them over and over. Include fiction and nonfiction books. Help your child make a collection of books by his/her favorite author. • Draw the child’s attention to, and discuss, the illustrations, photos, captions, and headings in the books you are reading with her/him. When reading picture books help the child tell the story from the pictures on each page. Help your child make connections between what he/she reads and his/her life. • Let your child read to you and anyone else who is willing to be read to. Accept and praise your child’s attempts to read. • Allow “wait-time” when your child is reading to you. She/he needs time to reread and self correct. • If your child inserts a word while reading and it makes sense, don’t interfere. If a word he/she reads doesn’t make sense wait until the end of the sentence or paragraph and say, “ You said…, does that make sense?” • Enroll your child in the local library, and browse with your child at the local bookstore. • Encourage your child to bring a book home from school every day. • Use instructions to make things together, for example, cooking or planting seeds. • Give your child books as presents on special occasions, and encourage him/her to give books as gifts to friends and family.© 2008.

KIDZ BOOK HUB NEWSLETTER MAY 2020 BLM 11 Page  6 What’s new at Kidz Book Hub PAasrseensst NGouwidPearMeantteGruiiadles How you can help your child as a writer • Show your child how you use writing: write the shopping list, reminders, telephone messages, greeting cards, and e-mails in front of them. • If your child asks about letters, call them by NAME, not sound. • Buy your child some magnetic letters so he/she can make words, and put them on the refrigerator door. • Make a family message board and encourage the child to write her/his own messages. • Encourage your child’s attempts at spelling, telling him/her to try it on his/her own. • Write messages to your child such as “please feed the dog,” and encourage her/ him to write replies. • Make a special place where your child can write. Make sure there are pencils and paper there. • Encourage your child to make and send greeting cards for special occasions. • Encourage your child to write and send letters and e-mails. • Write a letter to your child and send it by mail. • Start a family diary to record special days and events. • If your child asks you to fix his/her writing, check with the school to see if there is an agreed editing checklist and get a copy. • Work with your child so that she/he is making the corrections, not you. • Don’t use a red pen to correct children’s writing. • Make sure your child has access to a dictionary and thesaurus that he/she can use. There are simple picture and junior dictionaries at bookstores and libraries. 124 © Assess Now 2008. This sheet is reproducible for classroom use only.
