Many times teachers (and principals) are asked by parents, "What can I do at home to help my child be successful at school?" Our answer is quite simple. "Read with your child every day." Before, during, and after the reading. . . praise your child, talk about the story, ask questions, visualize the story, offer information, share personal reactions, and relate the story to life experiences. Most of all, remember to enjoy the story together, and let your child see that reading is fun. Cherish this special time together!
