I Am Reading On My Own

I Am Reading On My Own

Readers at this stage are able to read simple, familiar stories with increasing speed and accuracy. They use their large sight vocabulary and phonics skills to figure out new words or fill in the blank using context clues. Reading is more automatic; their energy more devoted to comprehension than sounding out.

Tips for Caregivers

Look for books with more pages, more text per page, longer sentences, richer vocabulary, and less reliance on pictures. Language is more formal and descriptive at this stage. Their newfound fluency will allow them to read for meaning and make predictions.
