Reach for the Stars

Developing fluency

  • Once your child is confident recognising most GPCs (that they have been taught so far), encourage them to stop pointing at the words. We read more quickly with our eyes. They can use their finger if they need to slowly check a word.
  • Allow your child to read a favourite book over and over again. They have done the hard work on it and are now freed up to work on reading it smoothly, making it sound good and feel like a reader.
  • Remind your child to look out for commas and full stops and pause or stop when they see them.
  • Read some parts  a book to them to show them how it needs to sound. Say "listen to me read this part - now you try."
