How to help your child read aloud in class

​You remember how it was when you were in school. Popcorn reading is when a teacher asks the class to open a book, he or she starts to read then calls on a student to read next. Everyone must pay attention to the story and follow along in their books because we would never know who would be called next. We would try to learn the order the teacher used to call names. Were they going by the order of the desk or alphabetical order by last names? Was the teacher looking to see who wasn’t paying attention and then choosing students who looked lost or confused. This entire process was nerve-racking. So now that we are adults with our own children, how do we help our children learn to be confident readers?​

  1. It all starts at home. Have children practice reading aloud at home.
  2. Encourage your children to read often. Reading fiction books aloud can help build reading confidence in younger children. Fiction for younger children often have familiar words and repetition.
  3. Introduce your kids to new vocabulary words. Have them practice reading these new words out loud.
  4. And as always, encourage and praise children for doing their best. We want our children to enjoy the experience of learning. Praise and encouragement can help them find joy in learning.
