    Reading Routines

    1.  Read to your child.
    Read the selection aloud to your child several times, pointing as you read.  You are modeling fluent reading.

    2.  Read with your child.
    Read the selection aloud several times with your child.  Choral reading (reading aloud together with your child) is a supportive way to introduce new text.

    3.  Listen to your child read.
    Your child reads the selection several times to you.  Offer praise.  Readers must practice to achieve fluency.
