Help Your Child with Literacy

How can I help my child at home?Harris_Tottenham_Primary_Image_25

At Harris Academy Tottenham, children will read their RWI books three times in school before they bring it home to read with you. There are many different activities that you can do to your support your child at home. Here is some information about some of the activities that you could try. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.

Speed sounds

At the front of the book, there are speed sounds which your child can practise reading.  A video link here shows how can you practise the speed sounds with your child. http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-storybook-activities-speed-sounds. This activity should be fun and only take a minute or two to complete.

Green and red words

Green words are words that are made up of sounds that your child already knows. Your child will say the individual sounds and then blend them together to read the word.

Red words are common words used in the English language, these are words that your child will have been taught to read as a whole word rather than sounding them out.

 This video link will provide further guidance about how to help your child at home when reading green and red words. http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-storybook-activities-green-and-red-words

harrisTot42Reading the story

When your child is reading the story to you, you can help them by:

  • Pointing to the words
  • Discussing what is happening in the story
  • Asking questions to deepen your child’s understanding
  • Helping your child to predict what might be happening next.
