Reading in its simplest form is a combination of two critical skills. First, children must be able to decode and sound out written words, as mentioned in “10 Books to Help Teach your Child to Read.” Additionally, readers must be able to gain meaning from those words through their use of vocabulary, reading fluency, and comprehension. The resources below will help you assist the children in your life to become stronger readers. Also, you can search for more printable mini books, reader’s theatre, and vocabulary activities, by your child’s grade or reading level through Scholastic Teachables.
