  16. Food for thought Do not make the excuse I am not a good reader. Only 50% of the parents reported to actual read to their children. Another excuse, my child is not interested in reading. It is to our advantage to teach children to discover the joy, freedom and the power of reading. It is important to connect reading with pleasure, which will help to sow the seeds of an enthusiastic reader.

  17. Children with Special Needs • Greater emphasis on read aloud stories. Most children listening skills are stronger than their reading skills. • Dyslexic children can learn phonics. They need a structured, multi-sensory reading program. • Teach children to look and listen for the 5 W’s when reading. • Who are the main characters? • Where does the story take place? • When does the story take place? • What is the conflict in the story? • Why do the characters do what they do in the story?
