Help your child become a good readerThere are lots of things you can do to help your child learn the basic skills they need to become proficient readers. The first step is for children to learn their letters and letter sounds, and then they start blending those sounds to create words. Singing songs, reading rhyming books and saying silly tongue twisters are some ways you can help your child to become more sensitive to the different sounds in words.
