Tips and Ideas for Parents & Teachers
are a few ideas for parents and teachers:
- Look for important
first words when you're reading picture books together. After
you've finished reading an enjoyable book, go back and
look for these sight words. Encourage your first grader to read
sentences aloud that contain the words he's learning.
- Ask your child to
say his spelling words aloud from time to time in spare moments. Choose
just one or two words to work on at once. Quiz your child (or students)
many, many times but only for a minute or two. Long periods of drill is
counter-productive at this age.
- Finally, ask your
child to write the words. If possible, have manuscript paper available
so he can use the lines for guidance.
