Synopsis

Read at Home: Helping Your Child to Read Handbook by Kate Ruttle, Annemarie Young

Read at Home is a new series designed for young, beginner readers. It features all the popular Oxford Reading Tree characters in 12 exciting stories specially written for parents to support their children's reading at home. These entertaining stories, with real life and fantasy adventures, are carefully graded across 4 levels, and contain built-in progression and vocabulary repetition throughout. The Handbook gives practical advice on the stages children go through in Learning to Read. It explains the 5 early stages of reading development from listening to stories, to Getting Ready to Read (level 1), Starting to Read (level 2), Becoming a Reader (level 3), Building Confidence in Reading (level 4) to Reading with Confidence. At every step there are suggestions on how to support the child's reading and lots of easy games and activities that provide valuable reinforcement. This will give parents real confidence in supporting their child's reading in an enjoyable way. In addition there are questions parents often ask, a section on home/school links - invaluable for parents when a child starts school, and a full list of the 100 Common Words repeated and highlighted in the books. There are also website details and addresses for key literacy organizations in the UK.
