Prompting Your Child

Simple prompts to help your child when they are "stuck" on a word:

  • Slide through each sound
  • Look for parts you know
  • Break the word apart
  • Try a different sound (especially vowels!)
  • Reread...what makes sense?

***Try not to "give" the word to your child...these prompts will help guide them to figuring out the word!  This will increase reading independence as skills strengthen!
