Pickle says…. I love to read. I started reading on February 13 2017 when I was just 4.Last week I moved up to Stage 6 of the Oxford Reading Tree series, I am 6 on Friday…
You must know about these books – good old Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy the dog. I have to say though that towards the end of Stage 5 I was getting a bit bored. Stage 6 is still about Biff etc but the books are a bit more exciting.
It is #LibrariesWeek this week, which is why Mummy and I thought it would be nice to share my reading journey with you.
I started with the Jelly and Bean books which I really liked, as Jelly and Bean are two cats, and we have two cats.
It is tricky finding time to read as we are always so busy, but I like to read in the car with Mummy when I am waiting to go into school. Here are some tips to help reading:
*Set aside a few minutes a day – maybe at bedtime, as a little reading every day is better than none.
*Don’t try and read too much – a couple of pages every day and you will make great progress!
*Try a reading app such as Reading Eggs – we love it!
*Try and read words together as you are out and about such as signs, posters, DVD covers etc.
*Use positive praise when words are read correctly and avoid using negative words if it goes wrong. Eg “Oh well done, that is almost right, the word is actually…’ Instead of ‘No, that’s not how you say it.’
So, I am doing really well on my reading journey and am looking forward to reading some other books soon.
How are you and your children getting on with your reading journey? Do you have any tips you can share with us?
