We always hear the phrase "practice makes perfect" when it comes to sports and music. This is true, but practice also makes perfect when it comes to reading. The more we read, the better readers we become. One reason this is true is because as we are reading, we will see the same words repeated. So even if we have trouble reading a word, we will likely see the word again which will give us another opportunity to read it correctly. There's only so many words in the English language so we will have plenty of chances to read challenging words, including words with similar pronunciations. Even best-selling novels contain Pre-K sight words. So there's no need to be discouraged if you or your child struggles with reading. You will start recognizing words sooner than you think if you just keep reading. Practice makes perfect!
Here are 3 ways you can make reading fun for you and your child:
1) Visit your local library and read there. You can also check out books from the library to read at home.
2) Read bedtime stories and don't worry if your child wants to read the same story every night :)
3) Write a story, draw pictures to illustrate it, and then read it.
