To help your child become a better fluent reader, begin by reading aloud to him/her daily. By reading aloud, your child will have the opportunity to hear what a fluent reader sounds like. Make sure to use expression and appropriate pacing during this time. Once your child begins to hear this used, he/she will start to use this skill during their own reading. Choose books from different genres, such as fiction, nonfiction, mystery, etc. and allow your child to add his/her sense about books to be read too. Choose books that are at higher levels during read alouds. It is fine that the book may be of a higher reading level. By reading the book to your child, you will introduce your child to more advanced vocabulary words.
