  ease with reading
            Examples and Ideas
   Where             Ideas to help learn
   Does               these words:

 Teach vocabulary in context by

  schema related to particular topics,
  conversational speech, writing and
  reading comprehension
         Examples and Ideas
 How To:                   Use the words that
   Identify vocabulary      your child’s teacher
   Discuss the meaning      shares in her parent
    of the word based on     letter
    clues                      Play guessing games
   Identify the meaning        with the words
    of the word                Break the words
   Use the word in             apart and put them
    speech and writing          back together
   Identify the word in       Create your own
    other readings              chart of “powerful”
                                words in your home
                               Make it a $.25 word
            Comprehension
 Reading Comprehension refers to the
  understanding of what we read
 Involves the elements mentioned above:
   Decoding, identifying sight words, and
    understanding higher level vocabulary words
 Also involves fluency - the ability to use all
  of these skills for a smooth, fluid read
   We will look at fluency more in depth in the next
    few slides
         Examples and Ideas
 Teach:
     Story elements
     Predictions
     Self to Text Connections
     Text to Text Connections
     Text to World Connections
     Questioning
     Visualizing
     Inferences
     Synthesizing
     Examples and Ideas, cont.
 How can you help? You can talk to your child about:
   Story Elements: character, setting, problem, solution
   Prediction: guesses before you read
   Connections: matches
   Questioning: what do you wonder about before,
    during and after you read
   Visualizing: pictures you make in your mind when
    you read
   Inferences: smart conclusions that you make from
    clues the author gives you; what is the author telling
    you that he/she did not actually say
   Summarizing and Synthesizing: telling the most
    important parts of the story and finding that “aha”
    moment – the big picture
                  Fluency
 Fluency refers to the rate, accuracy
  and overall “smoothness” of reading
   A fluent reader does the following:
       Reads words in a snap
       Groups words together
       Reads with expression
       Reads smoothly
       Reads for comprehension – to make
        meaning
            Fluency, cont.
 A fluent readers sounds like we talk
 A non-fluent reader sounds like a
  robot.
 Fluency affects comprehension
   They go hand in hand
   If we are stuck on sight words we don’t
    know or if we are stuck on decoding
    words, then our brain is so focused on
    that job that the meaning gets lost.
        Examples and Ideas
 3rd Time is the Charm!
   Research says when a child has read a
    book/passage 3 times, they can be fluent at that
    reading
 When a child has to stop and attack a word
  or is stuck on a word …
   Go back and read the entire sentence with the
    “problem” word smoothly
 Echo Read
   Model for your child – you read and then have
    them read it back to you
         Ok … so where is MY child as a
                   reader?
 WRAP

   child’s independent use of the following:
