How do I help my child learn to read?

As adults we don’t think about reading, we just do it! Many parents feel frustrated, puzzled or anxious about how to best support their 4 -7 year old learn to read.

At William Carey Christian School we value the partnership between home and school as every child learns to read.

On Wednesday 17th February 2016, WCCS is holding a free workshop for parents, grandparents and early childhood educators on the strategies to support a 4 – 7 year old’s journey towards fluent reading. This free workshop will run from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the School Auditorium.

This workshop will answer questions such as:

  • What is the brain doing when we read?
  • How does school teach reading?
  • What is phonics? Sight words? A levelled reader?
  • Why is learning to read difficult for some children? What can we do to help them?
  • How can we support reading at home?

Experienced classroom teachers and our Learning Support teacher will be presenting. Please note this workshop covers similar content to the one held in 2015.

Parents and educators of  Pre-school, Kindergarten and Year One students as well as interested members of the community are invited to this workshop.

Your child does not have to attend WCCS to attend this free workshop.

RSVP by Monday 15th February by emailing primary@wccs.nsw.edu.au or calling the school on 96082277 to book your seat.
