In order for your student to enjoy reading,
he/she must have positive, successful experiences.
Choosing a book
Choose a book/material with your student.
If the student is hesitant, offer
suggestions. (“This is one of my favorite books!” or “I don’t know much
about this subject –let’s read about it together.”)
To the extent possible, choose a book
within our current environment/natural world theme based on your
student’s interests. There will be a selection of fiction and
non-fiction books that relate to our theme each week.
Choose a book within your student’s
reading level. (Site Coordinators will direct you to the appropriate
grade level and eventually you will get familiar with what your student
is capable of)
an area to sit
Sit next to your student, rather than across from him/her, but respect
