How to Run a Good Home Reading Program Reading at home is an important part of developing your child’s reading skills. It provides students with additional practise in comprehending texts. There are many ways that you can help your child build their confidence and develop stronger reading skills. In Year One it is recommended that your child should complete fifteen minutes of homework per night, of which this should include ten minutes of reading and five minutes of spelling. Outlined below is an example of a quick and easy Home Reading program that you can engage in with your child. It should not take any longer than ten minutes a night. Each week your child selects a text of interest and one that they can read independently. This text will remain the same for the entire week. Research has proven that is better to develop
Numbers to 100!Use this chart to discuss counting and number patterns with your child.
and consolidate skills focussing on one text a week rather than reading a different text every night of the week.
Tips: Encourage your child and tell them that they are doing a great job. Give your child time to work out difficult words. If they make a mistake say, “Are you sure about that?” and ask them to re-read the word. Help your child sound out the words using their phonetic knowledge such as ‘c and h makes
the sound ch’, don’t just tell them what it is.
Below are some questions to help guide your home reading.
